LUAS Point Extension Shots

A few pictures showing the progress of works on the LUAS tramway extension to Dublin’s Docklands and Point Depot / O2.

This work seems as if it has been going on forever, and yet wseems far less advanced than that on the Cherrywood extension, which was a much later and longer addition to the network.

All pictures taken Sunday 19th October 2008 – click on any picture for a larger version.

Based on the fact that trackbed construction is not complete, or even started in some areas, I would suggest it was be late in 2009 or into 2010 before services commence on this line extension.
