Wellington Road - Road Works/Traffic Diversion Information



Road Works

The OPW wishes to announce that the Wellington Road in Phoenix Park will be closed to all traffic to accommodate road repairs and cycle lane installation until Sunday 5th March 2017.

Information signage is in place throughout the Park advising users of alternative routes within Phoenix Park. The OPW has liaised closely with An Garda Síochána and Dublin City Council on the planned works and the alternative routes.

Upon completion of the works, the Wellington Road will be one-way in the direction of Islandbridge Gate, as currently 95% of all traffic on this road is travelling south and exiting Islandbridge Gate. A new two-way cycle lane will also be in place upon completion of the works along with new road markings and signage.

The planned works meet the objectives of the Phoenix Park Conservation Management Plan.
