Traffic changes on Hume Street, Ely Place and Merrion Row to begin this Sunday 30 May 2021

Councillor Heney wishes to advise constituents that traffic changes on Hume Street, Ely Place and the Merrion Row area to facilitate outdoor dining will begin on Sunday, 30th May.

The changes are taking place following a recent trial and will be in place initially for the summer with a review to take place in the autumn.

The direction of flow on Hume Street and Ely Place will be reversed so traffic from St. Stephens Green East will use these streets.

Parking will be retained on Hume Street though the perpendicular parking will be changed to angled parking and the parallel parking will move to outside the new contra flow cycle lane.

The footpaths on Merrion Row have been widened on both sides with one lane of traffic remaining to facilitate traffic from Kildare Street.

A contra flow cycle lane has been provided on Ely Place and Hume Street and cyclists will still be able to access Merrion Row from St. Stephens Green East.

8 car parking spaces will be removed on the east side of Ely place. However 90% of spaces on Hume Street/Ely Place still remain.

There will be no changes to any disabled spaces. View map on link DCC200007-MR-BO-C-004-TRAFFIC REROUTE
