KN Circet, the contractor for the Francis Street Environmental Improvement Scheme, has advised of a road closure to Francis Street from Saturday 5th November to early Thursday 10th November to facilitate reconstruction and resurfacing of the carriageway. The works will see the full carriageway from Dean Swift Square/Swift’s Alley to Dean Street resurfaced. The street will be closed to traffic and parking will be suspended for the duration of the works.
The work programme will be as follows:
Saturday 5th November 09.00 to 23.00 Daytime works
Sunday 6th November 09.00 to 23.00 Daytime works
Monday 7th November 19.00 to 6.00 Nighttime works
Tuesday 8th November 19.00 to 6.00 Nighttime works
Wednesday 9th November 19.00 to 6.00 Nighttime works
This major element of the works will greatly improve the appearance of the street and tie in the work done to date. It will also allow new markings and controls on parking to be installed, and will mean all major works will now be completed on the southern three quarters of the street, other than localised work install new lighting columns and plant trees.
Dublin City Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by the short closure.
