Department of Transport hails Luas Cross City as ‘exemplar’
The secretary general of the Department of Transport has described the construction of the Luas Cross City link-up as an “exemplar” for other similar projects.
The remarks were made as part of a question to Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) chief executive Michael Nolan by department secretary general Graham Doyle, who was chairing a panel discussion at the Transport Ireland conference on Wednesday.
“We can see the Luas project being delivered now is very much being delivered on time and on budget and seems to be an exemplar in terms of project delivery,” Mr Doyle said.
The new stops are due to open in December, but the project has not been without its difficulties with complaints about disruptions and noise caused by works, flooding of local businesses and even rat infestations being aired over the course of the four-year-long construction process.
