Dublin
Dublin has about one million inhabitants and it's in a rapid rising phase, a direct consequence of the positive Irish economical trend in recent years.
Despite this eminently economical development, the urban transport systems have shown many lacks, so that at the end of years '90 the Municipalty launched the construction of a modern mass transport system.
The selected system was a modern tramway network, based on 2 radial lines converging on the city center: - Red Line, from Tallaght suburb to Connoly;
- Green Line, from St. Stephen Green to Sandyford (partly on an existing dismissed railway track).
Busaras-The Point stretch (Red Line) opened on 8 December 2009, while Sandyford-Brides Glen Green Line extension opened on 16 October 2010. A further Red Line extension from Belgard to Saggart opened on 2 July 2011.
