Luas Red And Green Lines Back Up And Running From Tomorrow

There is some good news for Luas users.

Following on from yesterdays cancellation of Luas services due to Storm Ophelia, operations will resume from 5:30am tomorrow (Wednesday).

There are currently no Luas lines in operation today, however, Luas tickets are valid on Dublin Bus Services throughout this disruption.

A spokesperson for the Luas said:

“Hurricane Ophelia damaged the roof on the Red Cow depot yesterday at approximately 14:30.

“The roof is being repaired today. The firm contracted to repair the roof have estimated it will take the whole day.

“The section of roof damaged is over what is known as technical rooms.

“Within those rooms are Luas systems. Those systems, for example, assist with overhead power and the AVLS, which is the automatic vehicle location system.

“These are necessary to run the Luas operation.”

Continuous assessments for damages and possible repair are in effect.

Therefore, it is not possible for the Luas to be open to the public at this time.
