Merrion Row to trial new traffic flow

by Gazette Reporter

Dublin City Council it is to trial new traffic arrangements for Merrion Row.

The City Council recently received a huge response to its consultation on the new arrangements, with almost 2,400 submissions in total.

A total of 93 per cent  of respondents were in favour of trialling the new arrangements.

The trial will take place from 6am this  Saturday until Sunday night.

Under the new arrangements there will be one lane of traffic on Merrion Row serving traffic from Kildare St, while traffic from St Stephen’s Green East will be diverted via Hume St and Ely Place where the direction of the traffic will be reversed.

If the trial is successful a design can then be finalised, taking into account feedback from the recent consultation, which would allow for accessible footpath extensions on both sides of Merrion Row to facilitate outdoor dining this summer.

A full traffic management plan will be in place for the trial weekend.
