Councillor Charlie O’Connor, has welcomed confirmation from Tallaght University Hospital of arrangements with regard to the opening of the new entrance from the Luas Hospital stop which has been the subject of many enquiries from the local community.
He has previously shared concerns of those in the community at the delay in dealing with the matter but is pleased that progress is now being reported.
Charlie O’Connor has received the following communication from David Slevin, the CEO of Tallaght University Hospital
“I am pleased to announce that the new LUAS entrance will be opening on Wednesday 11th July. Opening hours will be from 6.00am to 9.00pm subject to review. The current back gate that is open between the two Luas stops will then be closed. The official route for all staff and visitors is to follow the signs and enter the building at Pastoral Care and then make your way internally to your required location in the hospital. When the Decant and Crèche building is open in October there will be a new external pedestrian route in place from this new Luas entrance to the Decant & Crèche building, Staff Restaurant, CLD and Trinity.”
According to Charlie O’Connor he will continue to monitor the situation and hopes that the news will be pleasing to the community.
