DAWSON STREET WAS VERY DIFFERENT BACK THEN [APRIL 2017]
Dawson Street looks very different today than it did when I photographed the area in April 2017. At the time there was a lot of construction work that needed to be completed before the introduction of a new tram service.
At 2pm on Saturday 9th December 2017 passenger services began on the Luas Cross City tram service – an extension of the Green Line through the City Centre to Broombridge. The Luas Cross City construction project started in June 2013 and has delivered 5.9km of track with 13 new Luas stops taking Luas through the city centre and north to Broombridge.
The Luas Cross City line is now an important part of the Luas Green Line.
