It has been identified at the Department of Transport several sites in Dublin that can be used for the parking of some 500 trucks should Brexit-related congestion block traffic at Dublin Port.
The site, according to The Irish Times, includes a bus and coach park operated by the National Transport Authority (NTA) at the back of the Convention Centre in Dublin’s north docklands that has space to hold about 50 heavy goods vehicles (HGVs).
Among the other locations being considered by the department are Applegreen service stations on the M1 where trucks currently wait before heading to the port for ferries heading to the UK.
“As part of its contingency plan the department is identifying suitable locations should they be required,” a spokesman for the department said.
The NTA said that its space remained operational as a coach park, and that it was up to the department to clarify its intentions for the site in a potential Brexit scenario. Applegreen declined to comment.
