Major Milestone for Luas Cross City Project – Landmark Gauge Run Test Successfully Completed

OCSC are delighted to announce that as Designers for the winning Sisk Steconfer Joint Venture (SSJV) for the BXD 400 contract, on Saturday 17th  June and Sunday 18th June in Dublin city centre, the first trams were tested on the new Luas Cross City route. The gauge run consisted of using two trams moving at slow speeds (from 5kph up to 10kph) between St. Stephen’s Green, College Green, over to O’Connell Street before testing was completed at Broadstone. The gauge run continued off-street between Broadstone and Cabra and then through the city centre again on the Sunday.
