Yeah - OK - so can you dumb it down a bit and explain what that is telling me?

Lucan Village is underpopulated and the hill might challenge the trams.

Didn't the trams go up the hill in "ye olde days"?

Luas to lucan would be a disaster. Look what it did for people on the red line out near kingswood and kilnamangh.
Bus service has dropped and luas takes longer to get into town.
Same for the Lucan one, it would take too long to get to town. We have decent bus service and lets not destroy that.
Lucan is a great spot in fairness with facilities out there, there is always something to do, loads of gaa and soccer pitches, big parks, running tracks, cycle lanes, tennis courts, skating centres.

Maybe the Luas takes longer off peak, but if you've tried to use a bus service from Tallaght to town in the morning, it will easily be more than an hour, while the Luas is 40 minutes, and more importantly, is reliable. You'll never be waiting 40 minutes for a Luas, unlike any Tallaght bus.
The Luas was the best thing ever to happen to public transport in Tallaght.
Would splitting the red line or building line F really relieve anything though? Isn't the plan for line F to merge with red line at some point? That would just mean that capacity on both lines will be restricted by the maximum capacity at the point where the two lines converge.
There's no current plan. It will be redesigned from scratch.
Merging with the Red line isn't an option anymore.
Send the red line down Thomas Street to College Green is one option with every second red line tram interchanging at Heuston with Line F.
