LUAS Cross City Works, November 2016 Update—ten photos.

The other day, Mark Healy and I continued our review of Dublin’s LUAS Cross City construction.

Track laying is well advanced through the city centre, yet gaps remain. Beyond Broadstone on the old Midland Line, preparatory work is on-going, while a short section of double track in the cutting near the Cabra Road is now in place.

I made these photos using my Lumix LX7 set in ‘A’ mode, but with a + 1/3 exposure override to compensate for the white sky and keep the shadows from blocking up.

All the images presented are scaled Camera JPGs. I have not modified the files for exposure, contrast or color.

  1. The MGWR line into Broadstone was double track, originally all the way to Ballinasloe. Singling of the line in the late 20s was only from Clonsilla westwards.
    No problem with two LUAS tracks

  2. Great photos Brian.

    Wondering if the cutting under Cabra is really wide enough for two tracks as the original MGWR line into Broadstone was single track……. though obviously it must be.

  3. Looks like Public Works here in US. A lot of “snupervisors” standing around watching or on their cell phones.

  4. Looks like a Public Works Crew. A lot of guys just standing aound or on their Cellphones….. Same here in the US as I can see it all over when you pass.Many more people than needed. No wonder it is so expensive and high local taxes.
