CIE Estate/Grattan Crescent Traffic Alterations
Article Posted: Tuesday 5th October, 2010
A number of changes are being made to the junction of Grattan Crescent and South Terrace to improve road safety.
Two parking spaces have been removed from the pay and display area on Grattan Crescent, improving sight distance for vehicles exiting the CIE Estate.
Bollards will be installed on the footpath at the end of South Terrace before the end of the year, according to Dublin city council.
The council has recommended against putting pay and display and permit parking on South Terrace to deal with the ongoing traffic problems on the street.
While some CIE Estate residents have complained about “rat running” through rear laneways the council says bollards will only be installed where a majority of residents affected want them.
"It is up to the residents association to contact residents and formulate this request with proposed bollard locations. The Traffic Dept will then review this request."
The information was provided in response to questions from Labour councillor Rebecca Moynihan.
Meanwhile, the long-awaited resurfacing of South Terrace is likely to result in considerable disruption on the two weekends when work is being carried out.
Digging and repair of the road will take pace on November 6th and 7th, causing intermittent road closures between 10am and 8pm.
On the following weekend the road surfacing machine will be doing its job on the Saturday, and this is likely to lead to complete closure of South Terrace for the day.
The council says it will provide residents with maps and times of closures.
