Traffic Disruption In Dublin After Bridge Damaged

Gardaí have said they are expecting traffic disturbance in Dublin after major works begin today.

A spokesman for Gardaí said that due to damage to the Citywest Bridge emergency roadworks will be carried out on the N7 Naas Dual Carriageway from today until Monday.

The spokesman said that as part of the repairs it is required to restrict the Dublin bound carriageway to one lane commencing at 10am this morning and that the restriction will remain in place until works are complete.

The Citywest Bridge (N82) will also remain closed during this time.

The spokesman said: "As much traffic as possible will be diverted onto the N4 and N81 to facilitate these works."

Full details of alternative routes can be found on the South Dublin County Council website – www.sdcc.ie.

Over the bank holiday weekend other events take place that may also have implications for traffic flow including the National Hurling League finals, Riverfest and The Great Limerick Run and Castleblayney Town May Day Parade.

Details of these events and any other events that may influence the flow of traffic will appear on the Gardaí homepage at www.garda.ie from tomorrow afternoon.
