IDOM appointed by Transport Infrastructure Ireland to start work on Dublin Metro Project

We have been appointed by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to work in partnership with Jacobs Engineering Group to develop and implement Ireland’s first metro system connecting Dublin Airport to the south city centre.

The new 19km high frequency, high capacity metro service will comprise 11km of tunnel through the Irish capital, with 26 stations, 12 of them will be underground stations including St Stephens Green, 3 will be elevated  and 11 will be at grade

Running from Estuary where a Park & Ride is planned, via Dublin Airport to Dublin’s south city centre, the scheme will integrate other transport networks across the city to maximise user capacity and functionality. Plans also include upgrading the existing Luas green line to Sandyford, to an over ground metro line to increase capacity and fully integrate the new metro.

Ramon Ramirez, Managing Director, of IDOM in the UK and Ireland commented:

“This is one of the most significant infrastructure developments in Ireland and for IDOM, it is a great opportunity to work and contribute to one of the most high profile projects in Irish rail development. This project will increase IDOM’s credentials as an authority in urban transport development in Europe.”

Recent metro projects worldwide include Seville, Barcelona, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, Ho chi Min City, Bahrain and Riyadh among others.

Our track record in rail systems has spanned a variety of rail networks including high-speed systems, conventional rail, tramways and metro systems.
