Australia-based Aldridge Traffic Controllers (ATC) is to install its ATSC4 VC6 traffic signal controller in Dublin, Ireland, for the Luas Cross City Light Rail project.
The new light rail system for Dublin City is the next phase of Dublin’s integrated light rail network and will pass through 25 SCATS-controlled junctions and 10 pedestrian crossings. It is the extension of the Luas Green line creating an interchange with the red line. There will be 13 new stops with 8 of these in the core city centre area.
Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) is delivering the US£432 million (€368 million) project with funding being provided by the National Transport Authority. The project is being undertaken in close collaboration with Dublin City Council, the administrative body responsible for Dublin City.
Live testing of the new tram line commenced in June; the new line is expected to be fully operational with paying passengers by December 2017.
