Dublin MetroLink, a technological landmark


Every new Metro System Project is a unique opportunity to distinguish a city. Following a challenging competition with other top international firms, IDOM has won the confidence of Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and the National Transport Authority (NTA) and is now designing Metrolink, the first metro system in Dublin, a European capital with a rich historical, urban and cultural heritage.

Together with Jacobs, we are developing the design of systems engineering, civil engineering, stations, railway systems and rolling stock. Our extensive experience in similar projects around the world means that we can apply innovative design criteria with the clear objective of optimizing investment, operations and the user experience. Given its intrinsic characteristics, Metrolink is a one-of-a-kind project.

This new line stretches for 26.4 km and has 26 stations, including 11.5 km configured in tunnels and 3 km running on viaducts. 8.6 km and 10 stations of the existing LUAS tram infrastructure will be upgraded to the Automatic Metro standard (GoA 4), the standard to be used on the entire Project. BIM Level 2 is the design technology being used across all disciplines.

In short, Metrolink will integrate the most advanced and current technologies, to deliver a state-of-the-art urban transport infrastructure that will become a landmark in the city of Dublin.
