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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
