LUAS extension a good news story for Tallaght – Crowe

2 July, 2011 - by Seán Crowe TD

Dublin South West TD Seán Crowe has welcomed today’s opening of the Luas Citywest 4.2km extension that will serve existing communities and developments in Fettercairn, Cheeverstown (Brookfield and Ard Mor), Citywest, Fortunestown and Saggart. 

Speaking after attending the opening of the new line, Deputy Crowe said it was important that people living, working and visiting Dublin City had access to a modern, safe public transport system.

He continued:

“Passenger services started today at 12 noon  and  Luas Citywest will serve 5 new Luas Stops located at Fettercairn, Cheeverstown, Citywest Campus, Fortunestown and Saggart. To further encourage people to use public transport, Cheeverstown Stop will have a Park & Ride Facility with 312 spaces and the line will terminate at Saggart Stop.

“This facility will undoubtedly make a big difference in people’s lives and I welcome the opening of this important transport hub. I wish also to pay tribute for the work done by South Dublin County Council on this project and I have no doubt the new line will be a great success. 

“This is a good news day for Tallaght and will undoubtedly help retain existing jobs in the immediate area and hopefully stimulate new investment along the route.”
