Luas Cross City (LCC) is the next phase of Dublin’s integrated light rail network. Luas Cross City will extend the existing Luas Green Line from St. Stephen’s Green West to the Iarnród Éireann Broombridge Station in Cabra.
The construction of the Luas Cross City project is a complex undertaking which requires the involvement of different specialists at various stages. A number of work phases are involved in the completion of this new infrastructure. These works were planned and implemented in consultation with key stakeholders, ensuring effective communication and engagement with the public in advance of changes to traffic route arrangements or any traffic diversions which were required.
