Consultation opens into Dublin Luas extension

A consultation for extending the Dublin tram system Luas green line from Broombridge towards Charlestown.

It is 4km long and adds four new stops to the line: St Helena’s, Finglas Village, Mellows Park and Charlestown. It includes a 600-space Park & Ride at Charlestown as well as a pedestrian and cycling path along most of the line. It will interchange with the Maynooth and Docklands rail line and future DART services at Broombridge and with BusConnect at the new Luas stops. Tram journey time from Charlestown to Broombridge will be 13 mins and approximately 30 mins from Charlestown to Trinity College in the city centre.
