THE Luas Cross City project team has published detailed information on exactly where the new Northside stops on the extension to the Green Line will be.
The new 5.9km Cross City line is set to open in December and will run from Broombridge to St Stephen’s Green and take 21 minutes to get there.
The route will be a double Luas track at the south end of the line and it will then split into two single tracks to loop around the city centre at College Green.
It then returns to a double track from the top of O’Connell Street on up to Broombridge.
The journey from the Northside will begin at a stop beside the Iarnród Éireann station at Broombridge and continue on to Cabra where passengers will alight at a stop within the former Broadstone railway cutting, north of the Fassaugh Road bridge.
The next stops are in Phibsborough on the railway cutting between North Circular Road and Grangegorman, along the western perimeter of the Broadstone Bus Depot.
The trams will then stop at Broadstone/DIT across from the Broadstone building with access from Constitution Hill. The Dominick Street stop is on the Western Side of Dominick Street Lower, close to the junction with Parnell Street.
The stop on Parnell Street will be on the north side of the street between Cavendish Row and Parnell Place and the next stop heading south is on Marlborough Street at the junction of Sackville Place near the Abbey Street junction.
Trams will then cross the Liffey and stop at Trinity College and Dawson Street, close to the junction with Duke Street before ending at St Stephen’s Green.
On the return journey to Broombridge trams go a slightly different route from Dawson Street through Westmoreland Street, while there are two stops on O’Connell Street at the GPO and the junction of Cathal Brugha Street.
