THE NEW EXTENDED Luas line will finally start taking passengers from 9 December, the operator has confirmed.

Road works to link both the green and red lines have been ongoing for a number of years but Luas confirmed on their social media pages that it will finally be open for business in a little over four weeks.

When it is completed, it will now take 21 minutes to travel the 5.9km from Broombridge in Cabra to St Stephen’s Green.

There are 13 new stops with 8 of these are in the core city centre area.

The project cost is €368m and is due for completion December 2017 and the National Transport Authority said that the extension will create additional interchanges between bus, rail and Luas across the public transport networks.
