From December, this is what the Luas map will look like

From December, you’ll be able to take the Luas to Cabra, Grangegorman, the GPO and Trinity College.

IF YOU’RE TIRED of the Luas works, here’s some news to cheer you up.

After four years of construction, the work is almost finished, and the Luas Cross City project have released an updated map to include the new Luas line – coloured in blue above.

It lists 13 new stops: Broombridge, Cabra, Phibsborough, Grangegorman, Broadstone, Dominick, O’Connell Upper, O’Connell GPO, Parnell, Marlborough, Trinity, Westmoreland and Dawson.

That means the new Luas tram will give greater access to three of Dublin’s four main universities: Trinity College, DIT, and DCU.

Once the project is complete, you won’t have to change trams if travelling from Brides Glen to Broombridge – meaning the green line tram won’t stop at Stephen’s Green (currently the most northern stop on the green line) and will continue on to Bloombridge.

The new route will be called the green line once it’s complete, the blue colour just indicates the new tracks and stops.

Construction work is ongoing with latest road disruptions to affect Dawson Street, Anne Street South, Duke Street and Duke Lane for the next two months.

The line is expected to open in December; construction on the Luas Cross City began in June 2013. The cost of the project is estimated at €368 million.
