'Total gridlock' in Dublin with new Luas green line disrupting traffic

Delays still remain in Dublin city centre following the first rush hour with the new Luas green line extension.

Passengers on trams and buses have complained of total gridlock on the north quays and around College Green.

Many say they are optimistic the service will be fantastic once the teething issues are sorted out.

But some passengers disembarking this morning were feeling frustrated.

The Dublin Chamber of Commerce says this morning's traffic chaos shows the importance of College Green as a main artery.

The group is arguing it should be prioritised for traffic rather than pedestrianising the area in front of Trinity.

Graeme McQueen, spokesperson for the group says: "If (College Green) doesn't function the rest of the city doesn't function…We have got to get College Green right."
