The Luas on O’Connell Street, Dublin

This morning was the first Monday of the new Luas cross city service.

So how did that go?


Conor Pope, in The Irish Times, reports:

A traffic signalling failure in Dublin caused traffic chaos across the city on Monday morning, the first weekday of the new Luas cross city service.

Dublin City Council, the Luas and the Garda traffic division are all working to deal with the signalling failure which has seen the new tram line get off to a very rocky start on its first day of ferrying serious volumes of commuter traffic.

…this work both orders the world and exaggerates its chaos. With the camera on a tripod, I take many dozens of pictures and simply leave the figures I choose and omit the rest (in photoshop). Nothing has been changed. Only selected.
