Seven Red Line Luas stops are ceasing operations from 9.00pm Saturday.

Abbey Street, Busáras, Connolly, George's Dock, Mayor Square - NCI, Spencer Dock and The Point will be closed until the end of July for Luas Cross-City works.

A replacement bus service will be provided for people using all stops east of Jervis.

The bus stops will be located on The Quays - a short walking distance from the closed Luas stops.

The bus service will start on Bachelor's Walk near Jervis, serve five stops along The Quays - and then terminate on Castleforbes Road near The Point.

The return service will start on Mayor Street Upper near The Point, serve four stops along the quays - and then terminate on Crampton Quay across the Liffey River from Jervis.

The replacement bus service will have similar operating hours to the Luas service.

"The frequency of the buses is designed to match the frequency of the tram services to Jervis. As with tram services the frequency of the replacement bus services will vary throughout the day", Luas says.

Luas says the closures are necessary to facilitate Luas Cross-City construction works on O'Connell Street and Marlborough Street.
