The project comprises an extension to the Dublin LUAS light rail system Red Line (A1). The extension is approximately 4.2 km in length and comprises a double track spur that will link up with the existing Red Line between the Belgard and Cookstown Stops. It will then run west through the associated junction and will follow the route of the proposed Embankment Road extension, along the greenfield reservation to the north of Cairnwood onto Ambervale, Belgard Green, Fettercairn (proposed stop) and Kilmartin. It will then cross the Outer Ring Road (ORR) before reaching Cheeverstown (proposed stop with Park and Ride). From here it will run adjacent to the Brookview and Ardmore housing estates and into the developing Citywest Campus (proposed stop). It will then cross the N82/CityWest road to Fortunestown (proposed stop) and continue along Fortunestown Lane to terminate at Saggart (proposed stop).
