IDOM, partnering with Jacos into a JV, carries out the Engineering Works the implementation of the MetroLink Project, which will develop in 5 stages over the next 10 years, from preliminary design to commissioning. The Project Owner is Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and the National Transport Authority (NTA) of Ireland.
MetroLink will link the north and south of the city along 26 km. The centre of Swords will connect to the airport, and then on to the city centre, and then the service will travel southwards from Charlemont to Sandyford. The line has 25 stations and the alignment runs underground, elevated or at grade level, depending on the section. On the southern section, the existing tram line (LUAS) will be upgraded to the automatic Metro Standard (GoA 4), the standard to be used for the operations of the entire MetroLink system.
MetroLink is a project tailored to the people of Dubling. Fluid and sustained dialogue is maintained with individuals and associations, whose opinions are analyzed to define the requirements for the construction and operations of MetroLink. This exciting dynamism adds dimension, nuance and richness to the services we are providing. We are developing an urban transport system 4.0: accessible, efficient, respectful to the environment and sensitive to all social sectors.
IDOM is developing all the engineering associated with the implementation of MetroLink as an urban rail system: the layout of the tunnels, viaducts and stations, in addition to the railway systems, rolling stock and depots/workshops. Including the operations study. BIM Level 2 is being used for the design, across all disciplines, which has a built-in Asset Data Management engine to make easier design, construction, operation and maintenance activities.
