Luas services have been suspended for the rest of the day.

The company revealed last night that damage to a depot at their stop in the Red Cow as well as a technical room from Hurricane Ophelia had caused services to be suspended from today.

Management at Transdev have just concluded a meeting, and released a statement on their website:

"Hurricane Ophelia damaged the roof on the Red Cow depot yesterday at approximately 14:30 

"The roof is being repaired today - the firm contracted to repair the roof have estimated it will take the whole day.

"The section of roof damaged is over what is known as technical rooms.

"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."

Luas management have said services will resume from 5:30am tomorrow (Wednesday 17th October).
