The works on the Luas Cross City project are ongoing along the whole length of the project. Below you will find an update of the works to date and the upcoming construction activities in your area.
The first phase started in June 2016, which involved the strengthening of the arches under the North Circular Road and Cabra Road bridges. Further reinforcement at the bridges includes parapet strengthening works. The piling works for the lift shafts at North Circular Road and Cabra Road bridges are now completed.
Lift shafts at NCR Bridge and Cabra Road Bridge are currently under construction.
Parapet strengthening works are progressing. The North Parapet is complete on Cabra Road Bridge with the new railing to be erected.
Heritage Wall Repairs
The heritage walls have undergone several surveys and their condition was logged carefully during the preparation phase. SSJV are currently restoring the Great Western Railway Walls by hand with specialist contractors. Extensive repairs have been carried out to the heritage walls to date. These works are progressing well and are 80-90% complete as of mid-April 2017.
