AS PART OF the Luas Cross City construction works, only public transport will be able to turn right onto Eden Quay from O’Connell Bridge.

Described as a permanent change, no private vehicles will be able to make the right turn from O’Connell Bridge from tomorrow, Monday 20 March.

Taxis and cyclists, however, will still be able to use this route.

Luas Cross City urges all motorists wishing to access Eden Quay to do so using alternative routes.

In October, the lower end of Dawson Street was closed to traffic to facilitate these construction works.

Construction on the Luas Cross City began in June 2013. It is due to be completed by the end of this year.

The cost of the project is an estimated €368 million and when it is completed an additional 13 stops will be added to the Luas service.

The Cross City Line will link with both existing Red and Green Luas lines.

It will begin at Broombridge, with stops at Cabra, Phibsborough, Grangegorman, Parnell Street, O’Connell Street, Westmoreland Street, Trinity College and Dawson Street.
