Answered by the Minister for Transport
I signed the Railway Order for the Luas extension to Cherrywood on 14 August 2006. However, as the Deputy may be aware, a third party subsequently sought leave in the High Court to challenge the grant of this Order by way of judicial review and the matter is now before the courts.
The scheduled completion date for this project was 2010; every effort will be made, subject to the outcome of the current legal proceedings, to minimise the impact of the latter on this timetable.
