Urgent Update 

Dublin City Council Active Travel will commence the resurfacing of Herberton Road & Dolphin Road Junction on Tuesday the 19th March. The works will be carried out on Tues 19th, Wed 20th, Thur 21st and Mon 25th March.

Due to a number of factors, including traffic impact and constructability, these resurfacing works need to be carried out as Nightworks. The allowed hours of work are from 7.30pm until 6am each night. We are restricted to only carrying out “noisy” works from 7.30pm until 11pm every night which involves planing and breaking out of the old road surface. Only the laying of new asphalt is allowed after 11pm. This is substantially quieter but would still involve trucks reversing (with beepers) and other general machinery noise

The Grand Canal Pedestrian & Cycle Safety Improvements Project

The Grand Canal Cycle & Pedestrian Safety Improvements Project is part of the Dublin City Council (DCC) core active travel network. It is funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA). It will improve walking and cycling facilities, and provide safe crossings along a 3.8km route that extends from Dolphin Road at the junction with Slievenamon Road, to Grand Parade at the junction with Leeson Street.

Construction Start Phase 1 – Q2 2022

Completion Phase 1 – Q4 2022

Construction Start Phase 2 – Q1 2023

Completion Phase 2 – Q4 2023

Construction on this project commenced in June 2022 with works being carried out by SIAC Construction on behalf of Dublin City Council. Unfortunately this project is currently on hold due to the collapse and Liquidation of SIAC Construction in summer 2023. It is envisaged that a new contractor will be officially appointed in Q1 2024. A new program of works will be confirmed in due course.
