Luas services will resume on Wednesday morning, after Hurricane Ophelia damaged the roof of the Red Cow Luas depot on Monday afternoon.

Services on both the Red and Green Lines will resume at 5.30am.

The storm damaged the roof over the technical rooms at around 2.30pm on Monday.

According to a statement from Luas, the roof is being repaired on Tuesday which is expected to take the entire day.

A spokesperson from Transdev said: “Within those [technical] rooms are Luas systems. Those systems, for example, assist with overhead power and the AVLS, which is the automatic vehicle location system. 

“These are necessary to run the Luas operation. These rooms and systems are being assessed for damage and assessed in relation to possible repair.

“It is therefore not possible for Luas services to resume at this point.”
