Utility works associated with the Luas Cross City scheme commenced in the College Green area on Tuesday, 3rd June 2014.
The works are being carried out during the summer months, when traffic numbers are lower, in order to minimise delays and disruption to road users.
One northbound traffic lane will be temporarily closed in the College Green area for the duration of the works, with the two existing southbound lanes remaining open throughout. There will be no changes to car park access in the area.
Road users can expect delays and should use alternative routes where possible.
Gráinne Mackin, Director of Communications for the Luas Cross City scheme said, “While these works in College Green are significant, it’s important that everyone knows that the streets will remain open to all commuters and road users wishing to access car parks and shops in the area can continue to do so.”
“Our aim is to get a balance – between ensuring that the city keeps moving and getting this large construction project completed efficiently. We are asking that people take the College Green works into consideration when travelling to Dublin city centre. Road users that currently travel THROUGH this area to access other parts of the city centre are requested to take other approaches or an alternative route.”
All traffic should continue to observe the College Green bus corridor regulation times currently in place – from Monday to Friday, 7am to 10am and from 4pm to 7pm. An Garda Síochána will be actively enforcing these regulations during the period of these works.
Dublin Bus services will continue to operate as normal during this stage of works.
