Traffic restrictions on one of the busiest arteries into Dublin city centre have come into effect this morning.
Motorists won’t be able to travel inbound on North Strand Road from Fairview to the Five Lamps. Instead private traffic will be diverted onto Fairview Strand Road, Ballybough Road and Portland Row.
Buses, taxis and cyclists will still be able to use the route.
The year-long diversions are to allow work on the next phase of the Clontarf to city centre cycle track. The €62 million project also includes water mains works, upgrades to bus lanes and public plazas.
REMINDER - from next Monday, 8th August, significant traffic diversions will be in place at Annesley Bridge Road & North Strand Road, to facilitate the next phase of the Clontarf to City Centre (C2CC) Project. More info https://t.co/YKov0rh4Uh #c2cc #Dublin pic.twitter.com/nli8cvsVKv

However residents have complained they're being blocked into their homes and have asked for passes or special exemptions. People living along the affected stretch will have to travel out of town before joining the diversion route in order to head back into the city centre.
