There has been a disruption in the Luas Green Line due to an unknown incident in Milltown.

All service has been halted from Ballally to St Stephen's Green.

The company recently tweeted that the "Greenline is operating with a limited service from Broombridge St Stephens Green and from Balally to Bridesglen.

"There is no service from Balally to St Stephens Green in either direction."

Details of the described incident that caused delays have not been released yet at this time.

In response, Dublin Bus Services will be accepting Luas tickets for the duration of the delays.

The Luas operators assure the public that all Red Line services are operating normally, and they apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result.



It may seem like an eternity since work began on extending the Luas line, but the end is finally in sight. 

It has finally been confirmed that the Luas will be open to the public in less than a month. 

According to a tweet from the tram system, the extended line will be in operation from December 9. 

The Luas Twitter posted a survey, asking commuters if they will be using the new extended green line. 

The extension will be open just in time for Christmas shoppers to access all of Dublin's retail hot spots.

The line will host 13 new stops, extending from St Stephens Green all the way to Cabra. 



The Luas was out of action this evening between Beechwood and Stephen's Green on the greeen line – causing rush-hour chaos for thousands of commuters. 

Tram officials said that an earlier incident at Harcourt was to blame. 

The line has thankfully just reopened in the last few minutes, but there are delays are to be expected as services gradually return to normal.

"Green Line service has been restored with delays following earlier disruption," read a statement on Twitter. "We apologise for the inconvenience."

Pictures on social media this evening showed passengers making their journey home along the Luas tracks – many of whom were using their phones as torches to light up the ground ahead. 



If you were forced to get a bus, train or taxi to work due to this morning's Luas disruption, it looks like you'll be making the same arrangements this evening.

According to their website, the technical fault which suspended services earlier today has yet to be rectified.

Advising the public on the situation, the company explained that services between Stephen's Green and Bride's Glen "are expected to be down for the remainder of the day."

Customers are entitled to use their tickets on Dublin Bus services and have been advised that Finnegans coaches will be operating between Dundrum and Brides Glen Luas stops.

The red line service is operating normally.



If you found yourself listlessly waiting on a green line Luas for longer than usual this morning, it's due to the fact Gardaí were forced to remove a disruptive passenger from a tram at the Beechwood stop shorty after 7am.

According to The Irish Times, Luas staff requested the assistance of the Gardaí after a member of the public refused to stop filming members of staff.

Under Luas bylaws, the "use any camera or video recorder or any form of equipment for recording sound or images so as to interfere with any other person" is not permitted while travelling on the city's tram system.

It has been established that the same individual had also been caught filming Luas staff members yesterday.

According to a spokeswoman for Luas operator, Transdev, the passenger also attempted to knock the leap card reader from the ticket inspector's hand before being removed by Gardaí at the Beechwood stop in Ranelagh.

The incident caused a 15 to 20,minute delay on the green line this morning.



The Luas is down this morning due to a technical issue.

Commuters travelling on the Green Line were met with a notice to say the tram service was down until further notice.

Until now, the issue has still not been fixed, with many trying to use different methods of transport to get to work.

Dublin Bus are honouring all Luas tickets until the service is back up and running. This comes after Luas drivers went on a 24-hour strike yesterday.
