Responsibility for the development of specific proposals for the expansion of Luas services lies with the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA).

I understand from the RPA that they have received preliminary proposals from the private sector for the extension of the Luas Red Line from the existing Belgard stop, through to Citywest. I also understand that the RPA are in discussions with South Dublin County Council on this matter. However, these discussions are at a very early stage. At present the RPA awaits firm proposals from the parties who have expressed an interest in supporting this extension.
