Answered by Minister for Transport
As the Deputy is aware, the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) is responsible for the management of the Luas project. The RPA have informed me, however, that St. Steevens Lane has now been closed permanently to through traffic following initial periods of temporary closure. They have also assured me that the closure of the Lane to through traffic is in line with the plans for Luas Line A in respect of which a Light Railway Order has been made. The RPA have advised me that the Luas works in this area will be completed over the coming weeks when trial running will commence.
