Luas Works on Mayor Street


New Member
Is anyone else fed up with being kept awake by late night Luas work on mayor street? Last night the work continued till after midnight. I have phoned RPA in July after a particularly noisy late night bout of kango hammering, and they insisted that night was a one-off, never to be repeated. Ive phoned again this morning, but havent had a response as yet. Agreed the Luas is a great addition to Mayor St, but there should be a restriction after say 10 pm, so we can enjoy some peace in the evenings, and sleep in peace also.

Noise and Litter

I agree about the noise from the Luas works. However, I would have to say I would favour the sound of a pneumatic drill over all the screaming kids............

Digging up a road to lay tram tracks is never going to be a 'clean business'. However the removal of access to any bins along one side of Mayor Street has exacerbated the already serious litter problem in the area. I got in contact with Dublin City Council and they promised some months ago to conduct a review of 'litter services' in the IFSC. Since then the problem has got even worse! I guess it just isn't a priority.

So much for the Environment Minister John Gormley's increased on the spot litter fines!
