THE LUAS RED Line is back in service after a technical fault this evening put large parts of it out of service.

A spokesperson for Luas this evening confirmed that the line was back up but warned that delays would affect customers.

“Red Line passengers please be advised that services are operating with delays of 10-15 minutes due to an earlier issue at Steevens Lane. Please accept our apologies for any and all inconvenience caused,” a statement read.

The line had been down between Blackhorse and the city centre since earlier this afternoon. It is understood that there was an electrical fault on the overhead cables which led to the trams being put out of service. Luas said that the stoppages were due to “an issue at Steevens Lane”.

Luas said the Green Line is not affected.
