god bless your eyesight cos I can't make anything out.
The plan was to have this bridge carry the Luas over alright but that was a long time ago (DTO, Platform for Change). I imagine tram tack sleepers can be attached to it later but this would be the 'right' time to do it, maintaining proper deck waterproofing and protection (this bridge will be near enough the sea to suffer from rapid salt corrosion if not properly protected).
There's a fairly new bridge near me in Berlin which is nowhere near a tram line but which has tram tracks embedded into it as a line is projected to cross it in the future.
