Major Milestone for Luas Cross City Project – Landmark Gauge Run Test Successfully Completed

On Saturday 17, June and Sunday, 18 June in Dublin city, the first trams were tested on the new Luas Cross City route.

On the Saturday, the gauge run consisted of using two trams moving at slow speeds (from 5kph up to 10kph) between St. Stephen’s Green, College Green, over to O’Connell Street before testing was completed at Broadstone. On the Sunday, the gauge run continued off-street between Broadstone and Cabra and then through the city centre again.

The footage below shows an overview of the gauge run activity that took place over the two days.
