The Malahide Road roundabout in Swords will face three days of disruption from November 13th, for road resurfacing connected to Metrolink.
The busy roundabout will have a stop go in effect during the works.
The purpose of these works is to fully reinstate the road areas, where Slit Trenching Investigations were undertaken in recent weeks.
Contractors will also be assessing trees along route in the same week to see if they will be impacted by the metro works.
The surveys are visual inspections from the ground only and will involve the surveyors identifying and measuring trees along the route of the proposed MetroLink scheme and capturing photographic records. The surveys are part of the development of a detailed design for mitigation works in advance of construction of the MetroLink scheme.
Cllr Ian Carey said:
“Some traffic disruption was experience this week when the Seatown roundabout had a stop go in place so its likely we will be experiencing the same from the 13th on the Malahide Rd.
“It’s postive to see detailed planning on the project progressing now at pace. I hope the project will be in a position to break ground from 2025 as planned.
“Metrolink will be a transformative piece of infrastructure for Swords and the country as a whole. It will provide the kind of integrated network that hasn’t been experienced before in Ireland and we need to push ahead as best we can with the project.”
