Luas City Centre Link

Luas Line BX is the proposed cross city Luas Line that will provide a link between the Red Line and Green Line and importantly, will allow an onward extension to Broombridge via Grangegorman and Broadstone. It is intended that a Railway Order application will be made for the combined Luas Line BX and Line D in 2009.

Onward extension will serve the major Dublin Institute of Technology development plans for Grangegorman and allow interchange with Maynooth rail line services at Broombridge. Stops on Luas Line BX are proposed at St. Stephen's Green, Dawson Street, Westmoreland Street, O'Connell Street, Cathal Brugha Street, Marlborough Street, and on College Street.

The line will incorporate a new bridge over the river Liffey east of O'Connell Bridge linking Marlborough Street and Hawkins Street and opening a range of possibilities for the movement and routing of public transport vehicles. This new bridge is being developed and procured by Dublin City Council.

The line will be an extension northward from St. Stephen's Green of the highly popular Luas Green Line.
