New Port Tunnel Will Ease Dublin Congestion
Tuesday, December 28, 1999
The Irish government approved a $262 million tunnel-building scheme designed to divert port traffic away from the traffic-choked center of Dublin. The tunnel will provide a direct motorway access to Dublin's port, linking it to the main Dublin-Belfast route. It will remove heavy goods vehicle traffic from the city center, currently clogged by almost two million trucks each year.
Work on the project is expected to begin at the end of next year and take some three and a half years to complete.
