Dublin's electricity network is set for a major upgrade which could cause traffic disruption for a number of years.
Eirgrid says the works are badly needed as the city's electricity infrastructure is reaching the end of its life.
50km of new underground cables are going to be installed on five routes which are open to public consultation. There are concerns about the impact of the project on traffic in the area.
Michael Mahon from EirGrid says they have already been working with locals to try minimise disruption.
''One of our biggest challenges on projects is to work with communities and businesses to try and get consent to work on projects. We started consultation on this project, a year ago.''
So @EirGrid has announced a major upgrade of the electricity network in the Dublin area. A lot of roadworks ahead, but a crucial step towards decarbonising our energy network https://t.co/NWK6xpcomo pic.twitter.com/OLJP34Enwy
