Luas Red Line passengers can expect disruption between 7am and 10am on Sunday 12th March as stops between Drimnagh and James’s will be closed for engineering works.
A replacement bus service will serve stops from Blackhorse to Heuston instead. A valid Luas ticket is required to travel on this bus.
Now that Luas Cross City tracks are a permanent feature of streets around Dublin city centre, a new ‘Be Track Aware’ campaign is asking people to be extra vigilant – particularly cyclists and drivers.
“All of the tram tracks are now in place across streets in Dublin city centre,” says Grainne Mackin, Director of Communications for Luas Cross City. “Although there are no trams running on them yet, Luas Cross City urge everyone who uses these streets to be track aware.
“Cyclists and pedestrians in particular should be extra cautious. Cyclists are advised to cross the tracks as closely as possible to a right angle, and please follow the signs and road markings carefully.
“Motorists are asked to be alert to cyclists, particularly in areas with tram tracks. Motorists should give space when driving behind or beside cyclists.”
