The majority portray construction on the red line - the complete alignment was built from scratch. The most difficult sections were in the city centre, including James's Street and particularly Abbey Street. Public utility service pipes and cables were methodically mapped and removed, resulting in a lot of disruption, disturbance to business and dirt. It was during this period that Luas's critics were at their most vocal. Of interest is the alignment along the course of the Guinness branch of the Grand canal; the canal had been abandoned and the light rail formed a most suitable replacement of a public space.
