Plans have been revealed for the extension of the Luas tram line to Finglas in Dublin.
The plan would see the Green Line extended out a further 4km from Broombridge out to Charlestown.
It includes four new stops, two main bridges, a new park and ride facility and an extension to the Broombridge depot.
Transport Infrastructure Ireland is looking for a company to carry out a topographical survey on the project.
Kevin Carter is chair of the Dublin Commuter Coalition.
“We know from Project Ireland 2040 that there was funding for all the Luas extensions to be designed planned and even have planning permission applied for them,” he said.
“The real nugget of information is just that we are getting more specifics, which is great because it allows people to plan.”
Former Fine Gael TD Noel Rock, who has dubbed the project FingLUAS, said could connect communities in Charlestown and Meakstown to the City Centre in as little as 15 minutes.
🚊 Very much welcome today’s release of proposed draft plans of the FingLUAS. We know the intention is to have 4 stops, a park and ride facility, and ending in Charlestown.
I’ve campaigned for it since 2016 and won’t be stopping now. Full steam ahead, so to speak. 🚊 pic.twitter.com/XynSoPfOgE
