Luas works set to cause more disruption for Dublin commuters

Commuters in Dublin are being warned of more traffic disruption as Luas Cross City works near their final stages.

As part of the extension of the tram line, Luas stops between Abbey Street and the 3Arena are closed until the end of July.

From today, all stops east of Jervis - including Abbey Street, Busaras, Connolly, George's Dock, Mayor Square, Spencer Dock and The Point - will be replaced by a bus service.

"The Luas is only running to Jervis now so commuters should check where their nearest stop on the alternative bus service is," said Lauran Beehan from AA Roadwatch.

"It runs on Bachelor's Walk on the North Quays to Castleforbes Road near The Point [3Arena], and going the other way from Mayor Square over to Crampton Quay on the South Quays.

"Drivers should also bear in mind that Abbey Street, Marlboro Street and Talbot Street are now closed for the Luas Cross City works until the end of July, so allow extra time on Monday morning, as diversions are now in place for them too."
