Luas is a tram/light rail system in Dublin , Ireland. There are two main lines: the Green Line, which began operating on 30 June 2004, and the Red Line which opened on 26 September 2004. Since then, both lines have been extended and split into different branches further out of the city.

Design work is currently underway to extend the Luas line further into North Dublin facilitating thousands of extra commuters each day.

Fine Gael TD for Dublin North West, Noel Rock confirmed that the extension of the Luas to Finglas - coined 'FingLuas' - was in the design and planning phase with a preferred route expected to be identified in 2020.

The TD said, "This week I received confirmation that a Transport Infrastructure Ireland team have already begun planning and design work on the project and this work will continue until next year when an emerging preferred route will be identified."

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has suggested the Metro North project is likely to be extended beyond the northside of Dublin . The projects will include the M20 motorway linking Cork and Limerick, the extension of electrified train lines to Drogheda and Maynooth and a €7 billion investment in rural roads.

He added: "This route will be subject to public consultation and it is vital that the voices of the community are heard and taken into account.

"I successfully lobbied to have this project included in Project Ireland 2040 and I have always been clear that it must be up and running as soon as possible."

Deputy Rock said that the extension would be a massive transformation for the north-west of the city and would make a major difference to the people of the area.

He continued: "We cannot drag our heels on this and it is heartening to see that TII is acting on the vast number of representations I’ve made on this issue.

As a project manager she is committed to broad engagement while moving the process forward. Sarah also provides leadership at Planning NEXT for business development and research. It’s uncommon for someone to be both a talented planner and a gifted designer .

A project plan , project charter and/or project scope may be put in writing, outlining the work to be performed. During this phase , a team should prioritize the project , calculate a budget and schedule, and determine what resources are needed.

"I know it has made a huge difference to Cabra and Broombridge and I know it will do the same for Finglas South, West and Finglas Village. This will give Finglas the investment it deserves and needs.

"I will continue to work night and day to ensure that we keep the pressure on early delivery of this vital infrastructural project."
