Alterations to Traffic Arrangements on Bishop Street from February 1st 2015.

In a bid to reduce traffic conflict at the junction, Dublin City Council will be closing access from Bishop Street onto Aungier Street/Redmond’s Hill from Sunday February 1st 2015.

The closure is designed to improve traffic flow along Aungier Street particularly in light of the increased bus traffic in the area due to recent Luas Diversionary works.

The closure will make it safer for both pedestrians and cyclists passing through the junction and improve the environment for local residents by reducing traffic along Bishop Street.

The closure will initially be implemented for a trial period of 6 months with a view to making the closure permanent should it prove successful.

A drawing indicating alternative routes for motorists on Bishop Street from 1st February 2015 is provided below.
