As part of the Luas Cross City a new traffic layout is due to come into effect around St. Stephen’s Green at the end of November.
Dublin City Council have released traffic management plans for St. Stephen’s Green and the surrounding area. The new plans are expected to make travelling in and around St. Stephen’s Green easier and may reduce any disturbance the Luas Cross City works will have on traffic in due course.
There are two major changes to the traffic layout which will be in place. Motorists will be able to make a right turn on St. Stephen’s Green South onto St. Stephen’s Green West at the Harcourt St Jct and a second right turn will be in place from St. Stephen’s Green East onto Merrion Row.
This will mean that motorists wishing to access Merrion Row/Baggot St from St. Stephen’s Green will no longer have to go via Dawson St, Molesworth St, Kildare St.
