Answered by Minister for Transport
The issues raised by the Deputy are an operational matter for the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA). However, the RPA have confirmed that the last of the entire fleet of 40 trams for the two lines was delivered to Sandyford Depot last month. The first tram was delivered in November 2001 with the remainder having being delivered at the rate of approximately two per month thereafter.
