Luas Maintenance Work

We work 24/7 to keep the LUAS network running

Running the LUAS network for Dublin’s commuters is a team effort. The day-to-day operations and maintenance we carry out to keep Dublin moving involves dedicated teams across the city, working collaboratively and ensuring we maintain the best possible service for the commuters who rely on the LUAS, every day.

What is maintenance?

Maintenance work is essential to the operation of the Luas system and ensures we deliver a safe, reliable tram service to our customers. Our maintenance employees support our operations and project teams by making sure every part of our infrastructure – such as signals and power supplies, or assets such as track and platforms – is maintained and in good working order.

Routine maintenance work such as cleaning of infrastructure, washing of platforms and the track, waste management, inspections of the power supply system and light repairs takes place across the system each day and night of the year.

Planned heavy maintenance such as rail replacement, tamping, grinding and tree cutting takes place mainly at night as they require having no trams running.

Emergency works such as rail repair or overhead cable repair takes place as soon as possible to maintain service continuity. This may happen during the night or day.

We understand maintenance work will have an impact on you and your neighbours and for noisy planned maintenance work we distribute a 'Notice of LUAS Track Works' flyer directly to nearby residents in advance and/or post details of the works on the LUAS website. For emergency works, it may not be possible to distribute a notice before undertaking the work.

At all times we appreciate your patience and understanding.
