My colleague Cllr Brian Dennehy and I have received a notice from Fingal County Council regarding an order the council has issued temporarily closing roads in Rush, Co. Dublin, following an application from Jons Civil Engineering Company Ltd for the purpose of carrying out upgrade works to the existing foul sewer network on behalf of Irish Water as part of the Rush Waste Water Collection Project.
The roads will be closed on a phased basis from 10:00am Monday 15th May 2017 until 6:00pm Tuesday 12th September 2017.
The roads in question are:
South Shore Road will be closed from its junction with Sandy Lane to its junction with the Golf Road through to the Corrs Lane /Channel Road junction. The works are sequential and both roads will not be closed at the one time.
When works are underway on the South Shore Road the Golf Road will remain open and when works are underway on the Golf Road the South Shore Road will be open to traffic. The Golf Road/South Shore Road junction will remain open to allow for access to the Golf Club and local businesses.
This phase will be closed from 10:00am Monday 15th May 2017 until 6:00pm Friday 2nd June 2017.
South Shore Road will be closed from its junction with Hands Lane to its junction with Sandy Lane. This phase will be closed from 6:00pm Friday 2nd June until 6:00pm Tuesday 12th September 2017.
Alternative routes available for vehicular traffic are as follows:
Vehicles wishing to access to the west of the road closure at the Golf Road/South Shore Road junction can divert via Channel Road onto the South Shore Road at the Spout Road junction continuing on the South Shore Road to its junction with Linkside then heading eastwards on the South Shore Road towards the Golf Road.
Vehicles wishing to access the South Shore Road to the east of Sandy Lane can divert at the Lower Main Street/ Hands Lane junction.
Access to South Shore Road between the Sandy Lane/ South Shore junction, Hands Lane/South Shore junction and the South Shore Carpark will be for local access only. There will be Road Closed Ahead / Local Access Only signs at the Hands Lane/ Upper Main Street junction, the Sandy Road / Upper Main Street junction and the Golf Road/South Shore Road junction.
Diversions are via Corrs Lane/Golf Road.
Local access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times.
