Continued power outage stops some Luas green line services again, after short respite

A spokesperson confirmed all services on the Green Line are operating once again.

LAST UPDATE | 11 hrs ago

SERVICES ON THE Luas green line have been stopped after a power outage has continued to affect the route.

Earlier, a power outage had temporarily stopped all services on the green line and partially impacted routes on the red line.

After more than 60 minutes of services being stopped on the green line, during peak hours, trams began running again for a short period of time.

However, power outages have once again affected the route – causing the operators to stop services again.

A limited number of green line services are currently operating while red line services have been restored, after they were also disrupted for a second time today.

The service operator has apologised for all inconvenience caused. 

During the evening rush hours earlier, one tram on the Green Line was stopped at the top of O’Connell St, near the Parnell stop, and blocked traffic from busses and other vehicles on the road.

Most of the bus services had to reroute, around the stuck tram, onto North Frederick Street.

The green line connects Bride’s Glen, on the south side of the city, to Broombridge, on the north side, while the red line connects the southwestern side of Dublin to the city centre.

The outages have happened during the services’ peak times, between 4pm and 7pm on Monday to Friday, as many from the city centre try to get home or travel elsewhere in the city after work.

Up to of 70 trams, across both lines, operate during peak times. All of those services were been impacted by the outages.
