Luas Dockland Extension

    I was down at the docklands over the weekend and I noticed that the Luas track are all laid and everything seems well in progress. I've heard that they've already started to text trams of them. So does anyone know when it will be operational?

    The only disappointing thing is that it does seem to join up with the Docklands train station.

    It's disappointing that it does join up? Why?

    Light Rail Project.
    230. Deputy Leo Varadkar asked the Minister for Transport if the Luas extension from Connolly Station to the Docklands will not incorporate a stop at the Docklands Train Station, which is a terminus for suburban rail services from Dublin 15 and the proposed Dunboyne spur; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12925/08]
    Minister for Transport (Deputy Noel Dempsey):
    The Luas extension to the Point Depot, currently under construction, will include a stop at Spencer Dock. This is situated approximately 350 metres from Iarnród Éireann’s existing station at Docklands. The Luas stop is located to allow for integration with both Iarnród Éireann suburban services using the Docklands station and with the new interconnector station to be constructed in the area under Transport 21.[/quote] forget where i just copied this from

    Re the issue of the luas stop connecting to the Docklands station, this is a wlak of between 2 and 3 minutes max. Leo Varadkar asking questions like this in the Dail is just attentionseeking, if he bothered to look at the plans at the time he would have seen this.
