Dublin set for 4 new Luas lines as Dublin Metro plans are also revealed

Good news if you live in Bray, Lucan, Finglas or Poolbeg.

Dublin's Luas network is set to expand to four new lines as one part of the Government's new €115bn infrastructure plan, which will see schools, hospitals, homes, roads and other transport links built over the next 20 years.

Dublin's light rail service, the Luas, is set for four new lines that will head for Bray, Lucan, Finglas and Poolbeg.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has also stated that the long-mooted Metro North project will now be known as Dublin Metro, and is likely to extend to the south side of the city.

The Metro will link up with Dart and Luas lines.

On Friday, the Cabinet will lock down plans to map Ireland’s development to 2040, as well as an accompanying 10-year €116 billion capital plan to fund infrastructural projects, according to The Irish Times.

The plan is being put in place with the population set to expand by one million people over the next 20 years.

The building of more than 550,000 homes is being planned, while €1bn is being earmarked for the regeneration of rural towns left decimated by the economic downturn that began a decade ago.
