Works are due to commence on Monday the 6th January, 2020 and are expected to continue for approximately 9 months. Working hours will be mainly 08:00-18:00hrs, Monday to Friday.  Occasional evening and weekend work (particularly at road junctions) may be required. Carriageway surfacing works (undertaken towards the end of the Project) will most likely be carried out at night time or weekends.

Access to premises: pedestrian access to premises along the Scheme will be maintained at all times during the Works.  Vehicular access will be maintained as far as reasonably practicable.  When excavating the road outside individual premises, access will necessarily be temporarily interrupted. The contractor will liaise with those affected in advance of the work to minimize the disruption.

Similarly, access for emergency services, and refuse collection, will also be maintained

Vehicular Passage
As the Works include for the full reconstruction and realignment of the existing carriageways, it will be necessary at times to operate a STOP-GO shuttle system during the Works.  Motorists are advised that this will inevitably cause some delay to both inbound and outbound trips during the full course of the Works


Dublin City Council apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused and seeks the public’s understanding and cooperation during the course of these Road Improvement Works.
