THE GARDA TRAFFIC Corps have begun Operation Open City, designed to keep traffic moving around the city over the Christmas period.

The plan, in its second year, replaced Operation Freeflow and is being run in conjunction with local authorities and traders associations.

It will run up until Christmas Eve and gardaí say the aim of the operation is “to facilitate the movement of public transport and minimise traffic disruption to the general public through high visibility and enforcement activity”.

Open City will see Gardaí patrolling all major arterial routes and link roads during core commuter hours. There will also be particular focus on traffic management issues around car parks and major shopping centres.

Other areas for particular attention during the operation include Luas tracks, bus lanes and will see a Garda presence on late night LUAS and Nite-Link services.

The full details on the operation are available here.
