THE BROADSTONE TRAM STOP
I can use either one of two tram stops near me and I usually choose the one at Broadstone as the one on Dominick Street is less than safe because of ongoing drugs dealing in the immediate area (especially tho old flats). If your search online you will find many negative comments about this particular stop. I have not encountered any specific incidences at this location but have encountered problems at the Jervis Tram Stop and at stops along the Grand Canal on the Red Line.
I have a friend who is always very negative and when I brought him to see the new public space, at Broadstone, he said that it would soon become a hub for anti-social activity. I dismissed his prediction but today there was evidence that he might have been correct as there was a group of about ten youths with motorbikes using the area as a racetrack and they were less than competent.
As a result of the above I decided to check if there were any reported problems at the Broadstone Stop and came across the following: In June Professor David Fitzpatrick of TU Dublin wrote after a video was posted of a shocking incident in which students were subject to a tirade of racist abuse at a Luas station near the college’s new Grangegorman campus in the capital. According to the professor many students and staff had reported “incidents of intimidation and anti-social behaviour” at the Broadstone plaza and tram stop.
