Displaying items by tag: Major Traffic Plan

On a busy road route near Dublin Airport, a major traffic plan comes into operation from this week as works to lay a new jet fuel pipe between Dublin Port and the airport continues.

As Dublin Gazette reports, the second phase of construction on the pipeline at Stockhole Lane/Clonshaugh Road got under way on Monday, with a traffic plan in place for the next three months.

The €20m project is designed to provide a “sustainable” means of aviation fuel supply to Dublin Airport, replacing tanker deliveries with a 14.4km steel pipe tunnelled from Dublin Port to the airport.

The pipeline will remove more than 30,000 fuel tanker trips each year from public roads, with significant environmental benefits including a reduction in traffic volumes, emissions, accidents, road damage and noise.

The pipe will dissect a busy residential belt of north Dublin including East Wall, Fairview, Marino, Clontarf, Artane, Coolock, Darndale, Clarehall and Burnell.
