Ireland’s National Transport Authority and Railway Procurement Agency signed a new five-year contract for incumbent Transdev Dublin Light Rail Ltd to maintain and operate the capital’s Luas tramway on 
1 September. The EUR150m deal starts on 29 September.

Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe, said: “The success of the Luas is evidenced by the fact that passenger numbers last year exceed 30 million; a massive increase of eight million on 2005… Those numbers are only set to grow with the development of the Luas Cross City, which will link the Red and Green lines and create a truly integrated public transport system in Dublin for the first time.”
