Murphy Surveys deliver Surveying and Engineering services for all current Luas Cross City projects

Murphy Surveys will deliver Surveying and Engineering services for all current Luas Cross City projects. Michael Durnin will be acting as Chief Surveyor with the Sisk Steconfer Joint Venture, and will be over seeing all aspects of survey and spatial data activities with the civils and track teams. As well as providing survey, management, control and setting out for the works, Murphy Surveys are providing deformation monitoring and subsurface services.

The excavation and preparation for rail tracks works started in the College Green area, Westmoreland Street and O’Connell Street during August 2015. Over the coming weeks rail tracks will be delivered, laid and welded in place on key streets. Additional streets along the 5.9km route will be excavated and prepared over the coming weeks and months.

The project is due for completion at the end of 2017. It will see an additional 10 million passenger journeys with the extension of the Green Line from St. Stephen’s Green crossing to O’Connell Street and onwards to Broadstone and Cabra. There will be 13 new stops, 8 of which are in the city centre, creating an interchange with the Red Line on O’Connell St and increasing public transport options for people.
