Mary works everyday to support the needs of Dublin Central.
As part of her continued efforts to support the roll-out of Luas Cross City to Broombridge Mary wishes to alert residents that the first trams on the new Luas Cross City route will be tested this Saturday, 17 June and Sunday, 18 June 2017.
On Saturday 17 June, the gauge run will consist of using two trams moving at slow speeds (from 5kph up to 10kph) between St. Stephen’s Green, College Green and over to O’Connell Street.
On Sunday 18 June, the gauge run will continue between Broadstone and Cabra and through the city centre again.
These gauge run tests will take place from approximately 07.00am until mid-afternoon.
The tram movements will be controlled by test marshals on the ground and supported by An Garda Siochána to bring the trams across the city centre and through junctions.
During the summer months, tram testing will continue in advance of passenger services commencing in December.
