Proposed Point Roundabout Improvement Scheme Part VIII

Closed 28 Sep 2015

Opened 31 Jul 2015


A Part VIII application was submitted on 31st July 2015 for the Proposed Point Roundabout Improvement Scheme consisting of the upgrade to the Point Roundabout junction to a three-arm signalised junction with a left-turn slip lane from North Wall Quay to East Wall Road, Dublin 1.  This junction will include toucan crossings to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists on North Wall Quay and the East Link Bridge.
The upgrade of this junction will result in the requirement of a new access arrangement for Dublin Port to accommodate northbound movements. The scheme proposes to provide a new access to Dublin Port by providing a fourth arm at the signalised junction of East Wall Road and Sheriff Street Upper. This new access will enable the closure of the existing left in left out access to Dublin Port along East Wall Road. Additionally, to improve traffic management in the area, it is proposed to widen East Wall Road to provide an additional northbound lane along with a cycle track and footpath. The additional lane will allow a relatively free flow of traffic from North Wall Quay onto East Wall Road while also helping to ease the levels of queuing on the East Link Bridge.
This application relates to land within the North Lotts and Grand Canal Dock Strategic Development Zone.
Plans and particulars of the proposed development are attached here and may be inspected or purchased at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy for a period of 6 weeks from Friday 31st July 2015 to Monday 14th September 2015 at the offices of Dublin City Council, Public Counter, Planning Department, Block 4, Ground Floor, Civic offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 Monday to Friday 9.00hrs to 16.30hrs.
The proposal can also be viewed at the following location:  Monday to Friday 9.00hrs to 17.00hrs
