Trying to get around the city hasn't been particularly easy these past few years thanks to the Luas Cross City works, but now the end is in sight.

And it looks pretty damn good.

With the news that the first tests will be carried out this June, it looks like we won't have long to wait, and now an official picture has been released of what the Luas lines will actually look like.

As well as the Green and Red Line, there's going to be the Cross City Line which has brought with it an abundance of new stops.

Dawson Street, Westmoreland Street, College Street, O’Connell Street, Parnell Street, Dominick Street and Marlborough Street will welcome new Luas stops, as well as Boombridge, Tallaght and Cabra.

With test runs being carried out during the summer months, there also has to be extensive driver training, so it's looking like the big launch will be December 2017.

Are we already planning our Christmas shopping route? Yes.



If you're driving into town tomorrow, you might want to work out a different route as more road works are taking place.

As part of the Luas Cross City works, no private vehicles wil be allowed to turn right onto Eden Quay from O'Connell Bridge from March 20.


This is actually being rolled out as a permanent change, with only public transport, taxis and bikes allowed to use the route.

With construction set to be completed by the end of this year, it'll be another few months until diversions in the city centre will come to an end.
