The Luas Cross City was one of the largest projects ever undertaken in Ireland and involved an extension that brought the Luas Green Line through the city centre to Broombridge on Dublin’s northside.
Construction on the €368m Luas Cross City line began in 2013, and it was delivered on time and to budget in late 2017. Construction works for Luas Cross City (main infrastructure) was carried out as a joint venture between John Sisk & Son and Steconfer, a Portuguese-based global railway construction company. The project included the construction of 5.9km of track with 13 new Luas stops.
Enerveo were appointed by Sisk/Steconfer as specialist sub-contractors for the public lighting works due to our:
• Experience of working in the City of Dublin
• Skill and ability to work in complex environments
• Flexibility to work during restrictive hours
• Capability of working within a large city environment
• Knowledge and expertise in working with heritage columns
One of the major logistical challenges that faced the team that delivered the new Luas Cross City line was coordinating the activities of numerous stakeholders to minimise disruption on the capital city’s main thoroughfares.
Throughout the duration of the project, Enerveo:
• Laid 21.4km public lighting, mains and sub mains cable
• Installed/repositioned 200 columns
• Repositioned 60 heritage columns as part enabling works
• Installed 550 LED lanterns
• Installed 100 CMS nodes
