Tracking the Light Special Post: LUAS Green Line Service Suspension—7 October 2016

Today (7 October 2016), Dublin’s LUAS Green Line was out of service owing to an unspecified disruption.

As of 2:45pm, LUAS was reporting that Green Line service remained suspended.

More recent reports indicate it could be Saturday morning before service resumes.
