Point Junction Improvement Works

Closes 23 Dec 2022

Opened 25 Nov 2022

Overview

Dublin City Council are proposing to upgrade the Point Roundabout (East Wall Road/North Wall Quay) to a signalised junction in order to provide safe crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

The scheme will improve infrastructure in the area for the high volumes of pedestrians and cyclists with destinations such as the 3Arena, Point Village, Point Luas stop and other bus stops along with residential and office developments.

Dublin Port Company’s proposed relocation of their Terminal 3 access on East Wall Road (opposite the EXO Building) to Alexander Road will reduce the amount of HGV traffic at the junction thereby facilitating the construction of this project.

The signalisation of the junction is needed to provide safe crossing facilities for pedestrian and cycling at this location. It will also be compatible with the following future projects in the vicinity:

  • Tolka Liffey Greenway (developed by Dublin Port Company)

  • East Coast Trail

  • BusConnects (Ringsend to City Centre Core Bus Corridor Route 16)

  • Point Pedestrian & Cycling Bridge

There will be no access to East Wall Road from North Wall Quay for periods of the construction phase. Alternative routes will be via Castleforbes Street and North Wall Avenue.

The scheme is a traffic calming measure and is proposed to be implemented under Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1993 in the interest and convenience of road users.

The design drawing, AA & EIA screening reports and construction traffic management plans may be viewed in the links at the end of this page.
