Transport 21 provides for a new Luas Line from Lucan to the City Centre and for Metro West, an orbital line connecting Tallaght to Metro North at Ballymun serving Clondalkin, Liffey Valley and Blanchardstown. The Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) is at present progressing both these projects, which are at the preliminary planning stage.
The Luas Line from Lucan to the City Centre is scheduled for completion in 2013. The Metro West line is scheduled for completion on a phased basis by 2014.
