Luas Line 'improvements'

    We haven’t got to the stage of detailed service plans being published yet, but plenty of people use Heuston as it is from commuter services as well as the Phoenix Park Tunnel services.

    There is a need for both - anyone going to locations west of O’Connell Bridge would find Heuston main station more useful, as they can walk or take the LUAS or bus onwards from there.

    There is provision for several electrified platforms in Heuston main station in the DART SW plans to facilitate this, hence I don’t think you necessarily need to go to the lengths of building a LUAS line to Heuston West.

    I found this in FAQ section of Dart+ site. Sounds like 2-thirds of services will go via PPT. Based on that, I think there's a strong argument for a better connection to Heuston Main and onwards. If not a Luas, maybe the H-spine could terminate there.

    The platforms which are being electrified in Heuston are 6, 7 & 8 which are a 5min walk to the Luas, plus up to 5min waiting for a Luas - that's a relatively poor connection.
