The Luas Cross City project has now moved into the testing phase. Today Saturday June 17th the first gauge run took place.
It was the first time trams operated on the Luas Cross City section of the Green Line. The purpose of the gauge run was to measure and verify clearances between trams, physical objects along the line, the interface between the tram and the rail and also the tram and the overhead wires.
Luas Cross City Test and Commissioning will continue until the end of August 2017.
A public Awareness Campaign has been condusted prior to the Gauge Run reminding pedestrians, motorists and cyclists to be Tram Aware. This campaign will continue throughout the testing phase.
