Works to extend northwards the existing tram stop platforms on St Stephen’s Green West are to be completed. Luas Cross City works will not interfere with the running of Green Line Luas service.
The track work extending from the existing tram stop on St Stephen’s Green West around onto St Stephen’s Green North is nearing completion and new surfacing between and around the track will also be completed.
Footway worksites alongside St Stephen’s Green Park will be ongoing during this period on St Stephen’s Green West and North. At the bottom of Grafton Street minor footway work sites will also occur to facilitate works at the junction.
A single track is to be installed on St Stephen’s Green North east of its junction with Dawson Street. Bus stops alongside the park here will be moved to the front of the worksite.
A series of carriageway works will also be required on St Stephen’s Green North to upgrade road drainage network, lay ducting and strengthen road pavement where required.
All works are to be phased to minimise impacts on pedestrian and vehicular access to the area.
To accommodate the Luas Cross City works, the taxi rank on St Stephen’s Green North situated between Grafton Street and Dawson Street was moved further east along the street and is now situated between Dawson Street and Kildare Street.
To facilitate the car parks in the area, an additional access route has been provided by Dublin City Council via St. Stephen’s Green South and St. Stephen’s Green West.
