Mr. Crowe Mr. Crowe
Mr. Crowe asked the Minister for Transport the plans in place to extend LUAS trams; and when this will be achieved. [43779/06]
Mr. Cullen Mr. Cullen
Mr. Cullen: In November 2005, my Department gave funding approval to the Railway Procurement Agency to enhance capacity on the Red line (Tallaght to the  city centre). This involves increasing the length of the 30 metre trams to 40 metres, thus increasing capacity by 40%. The first of the extended trams is scheduled to enter service in Quarter 2 of this year and the tram extension project will be completed in 2008.
