Traffic Management Plans for Dublin Port and Dublin City Road Network

Changes brought about by the introduction of border and customs controls between the EU and the UK will mean additional controls in Dublin Port on imports and exports to, from and though GB from 11.00 pm 31 December 2020.

The necessary facilities and systems have been established to allow these controls to take place. These are designed to minimise any disruption to traffic flows through Dublin Port.

However, as part of overall contingency planning, a traffic management contingency plan has been prepared to manage the impacts, should they arise, on the Dublin Port road network. This is particularly the case where traffic has the potential to impact on roads adjacent to the Port, including the Port Tunnel, the M50 and M1 motorways.

These contingency plans have been formulated by the Traffic Management Group, chaired by the Department of Transport, which includes representatives of Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Dublin City Council, An Garda Siochána, Office of Public Works, Revenue Commissioners and Dublin Port Company.
