Luas link to airport likeliest alternative to Metro North
Thursday Apr 16, 2015



Minister to choose between six options and make recommendation before Dáil recess

A Luas link from Dublin city centre to the airport is emerging as the favoured option to replace the controversial Metro North project.

Minister for Transport Paschal Donohoe has initiated a review of various options for the north Dublin-Fingal area, including connections to Dublin Airport.

While the Department of Transport refused to comment, a number of sources have said Mr Donohoe’s emerging preference is for a light-rail option, understood to be a Luas line that would tunnel under Glasnevin Cemetery before linking to Dublin Airport and Swords

FORMER TRAM ROUTES OF DUBLIN

This is the complete list of the former tram routes. Note then the tram service covered the entire city. It was a great blunder to destroy that marvellous system. Bold names are both termini, and ordinary names are via streets.

Red means the new tram service following almost same routes.


1 Nelson Pillar - Pearse St. - Ringsend
2 Nelson Pillar - Pearse St. - Ringsend - Sandymount Green
3 Nelson Pillar - Pearse St. - Ringsend - Sandymount Green - Sandymount Tower
6 Nelson Pillar - Merrion Sq. - Ballsbridge - Blackrock
7 Nelson Pillar - Merrion Sq. - Ballsbridge - Blackrock - Dún Laoghaire
8 Nelson Pillar - Merrion Sq. - Ballsbridge - Blackrock - Dún Laoghaire - Dalkey
9 Phoenix Park - North Circular Road - Nelson Pillar - Merrion Sq. - Fitzwilliam St. - Baggot St. - Waterloo Rd. - Donnybrook
10 Phoenix Park - North Circular Road - Nelson Pillar - Dawson St. - Baggot St. - Waterloo Rd. - Donnybrook
11 Whitehall - Drumcondra - Capel St. - Dame St. - Merrion Sq. - Leeson St. - Ranelagh - Clonskeagh
12 Nelson Pillar - Dame St. - South Great George's St. - Ranelagh - Palmerston Park
14 Nelson Pillar - Dame St. - South Great George's St. - Rathmines - Dartry Rd.
15 Nelson Pillar - Dame St. - South Great George's St. - Rathmines - Terenure
16 Whitehall - Drumcondra - Nelson Pillar - Dawson St. - Harcourt St. - Harolds Cross - Terenure - Rathfarnham
17 Whitehall - Drumcondra - Nelson Pillar - Dawson St. - Harcourt St. - Harolds Cross - Terenure
18 Lansdowne Rd. - Waterloo Rd. - Ranelagh - Rathmines - Kenilworth Rd.
19 Glasnevin - Nelson Pillar - Dame St. - South Great George's St. - Harolds Cross - Rialto
20 Glasnevin - Nelson Pillar - Dawson St. - Harcourt St. - Harolds Cross - Rialto
21 Westland Row - Dame St. - James St. - Inchicore

More on Luas Cross City - progress on Fassaugh Road bridge:

Quote:
Fassaugh Road Bridge Deck Replacement

Luas Cross City works have commenced at Fassaugh Road Bridge. The initial works involve the installation of new foundations and abutments for the new bridge deck. The contractor is accessing the site along a haul road in the railway cutting running north from Broadstone Bus Depot.

The next phase of the works will see the new deck being constructed adjacent to the existing structure on a temporary supporting structure. Once the new deck is ready the existing deck will be removed and the new deck slid into position. Subject to Dublin City Council approval, a temporary road closure will be arranged for the deck installation and during that period temporary traffic diversions will be put in place (NB: A temporary pedestrian footbridge will be in place throughout the road closure period to maintain pedestrian access from Connaught Street to Fassaugh Road). It is anticipated that this temporary road closure will take place in July 2015. The precise dates for the road closure will be advertised following agreement with Dublin City Council.

I've recently bought this LP record, but suddenly I saw there is a tram picture on the background of the front cover. Is it a Dublin 1st generation tram? Please confirm, and write some details abut the location.

Covering Dart U, Metro, Luas, Dublin Port, and so on. They actually show you how the Metro would link to the Green Line at Ranelagh, and propose a different alignment in North Dublin. Its not part of the Fingal Transport Study so not sure how much traction it might have, but worth a watch.

Dublin commuter line upgrade launched
18 Aug 2015


Upgrading of the railway through Dublin's Phoenix Park Tunnel is launched by Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Paschal Donohoe

IRELAND: Work on a €13·7m project to upgrade the 4·4 km line through the Phoenix Park Tunnel in Dublin was officially launched by Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Paschal Donohoe on August 18.

From autumn 2016 commuter services from Kildare west of Dublin will be able to use the line to run though to Connolly, Tara Street, Pearse and Grand Canal Dock stations in the city centre. ‘For the first time, commuters on the popular Kildare suburban rail line will have frequent services directly into the heart of the south city business district’, said Donohoe. ‘This will provide an attractive alternative for private motorists who currently commute into the city along the congested N7 corridor’

As for DART Underground:

Quote:
http://www.rte.ie/news/2015/0818/722...tunnel-dublin/

Upgrade work on Phoenix Park tunnel begins
Tuesday 18 August 2015 14.49



...

However, Iarnród Éireann admits the service will not provide a direct link between Heuston and Connolly stations as the trains will travel through Heuston some distance from other platforms.

It says this is not a replacement for the Dart Underground, which would allow a direct link between the city's two main stations with capacity for 40 trains an hour.

The Government has until 24 September to decide if it will begin funding the €4bn euro Dart Underground project, otherwise its planning permission will lapse.
So there is a chance that DART Underground will be proceded

Not a lot happening at the moment, work has slowed down due to summer holidays but I expect things to get busy soon.


Luas works on Westmoreland St 27 August 2015. This looks the most progressed of the sites at present and may be the first (after Rosie Hackett Bridge) to get track. Other sites are College St, O'Connell St and Dawson St.


5025 St Stephens Green 27 August 2015
