There is disruption to Red Line services and traffic in the city centre this evening following a collision involving a Luas tram and a car.

Red Line services were only running from Tallaght/Saggart to Smithfield following the collision on Arran Street East and Chancery Street around 5pm this evening. However, Luas has confirmed trams are now operating to the Point once again but with delays.

“Please be advised that Red Line services are only running from Tallaght/Saggart to Smithfield. There is no service between Smithfield and Connolly/The Point due to a road traffic collision. We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” a statement from Luas operators posted on social media read this evening.

Dublin Fire Brigade said it was responding to the collision and advised road users of delays on approach.

Dublin City councillor Ray McAdam shared images of the collision on social media and said there were no injuries to report but “some people are shook” after the incident.
