LUAS SERVICES INTO the city centre will remain disrupted until tomorrow.

The Luas Green Line will not operate between Cowper and Dawson for the rest of the day due to “extensive” damage to overhead power lines.

Luas operator Transdev is advising that northbound trams will be running between Brides Glen and Cowper and then from Dawson to Broombridge but not in between.

It’s expected that normal service will resume from 5.30am tomorrow.

Passengers are being advised that Luas tickets are valid on Dublin Bus and GoAhead Bus Route 175 for those seeking to continue their journey.

“Customers who are using the bus service are advised to alight at Balally or Dundrum Stops for onward travel,” a Luas spokesperson said.

Southbound trams will be running from Broombridge to Dawson and then from Cowper to Brides Glen. 

The other major travel carriers have not warned of any significant delays caused by the storm.
