A new traffic scheme has been implemented in the St. Stephen’s Green area as part of the Luas Cross City works. The new system has two right turning lanes on to Merrion Row from the green and one left turning lane continuing around the St Stephens Green. Another major change is at the diagonally opposite corner of the green, the creation of a new turn from St Stephen’s Green South onto the west side of the green. Traffic taking this new turn will cross the existing Luas line and then run parallel with the line as far as York Street. This turn allows motorists access to the Royal College of Surgeons and St Stephen’s Green car parks, or they can continue on to Mercer Street and take Noel Purcell Walk to access Drury Street and the car parks in that area.
Works take place on Charles St Great until Fri 6th Dec. Expect delays and approach with care.
