Ref # 2020001-03
Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Passenger trap-and-drag on Luas tram at Heuston Stop, 26th March 2019
Occurrence Date 26 March 2019

Basis for Recommendation

To assist drivers in conducting a thorough final visual check after obtaining doors closed and locked indication and before moving the tram to confirm that nothing outside the tram is trapped in the doors, improvements to monitors (such as is present on the newer trams) and colour CCTV platform monitors (such as is present in Charlemont) should be considered, as a result, the RAIU make the following safety recommendations:


Transport Infrastructure Ireland should conduct a risk-based review on whether the tram fleet operating on the Red Line should be upgraded with coloured rear view monitors.
