FOLLOWING THE CLOSURE of the lower end of Dawson Street earlier this month, another change has been announced to facilitate the Luas Cross City construction.

However, this change is set to be permanent.

The right turn from O’Connell Street to Cathal Brugha Street will close on the morning of Wednesday 9 November.

The alternative route to the area for general traffic is via Parnell Square, Gardiner Row, Great Denmark Street and Hill Street. This is shown on the map below.

Buses, taxis and cyclists may access the area via Parnell Square and O’Connell Street, turning left into Cathal Brugha Street from the O’Connell Street southbound carriageway.

It comes as the Transport Minister agreed to suspend some Luas works before Black Friday, following calls from businesses owners.

Works will be suspended on Dawson Street, Nassau Street, Lower Grafton Street, pedestrian areas at College Green, Westmoreland Street and footpaths on O’Connell Street.

Planned pavement works outside business premises will also be deferred until January 2017, but the work around Trinity College will continue in November and December.
