This Dublin Road That's Been Closed For Almost A Year Is Finally About To Reopen

A Dublin road is finally going to be reopened to traffic over 10 months after its closure.

Edmonstown Road has been closed to traffic since November 2017, meaning residents have had to endure detours of up to 10km every day just to get to the shops.

It was apparently closed off last year due to ”unauthorised excavation works”.

Situated just outside of Rathfarnham in Dublin, the road is also known as the gateway to the Dublin mountains.

South Dublin County Council have now confirmed that repairs will begin in the next two weeks, finishing up in three months’ time.

One of the campaigners behind the ‘Reopen Edmonstown Road Now Campaign’ told the Independent:

“Locals are overjoyed with this news as it brings certainty and there is now an end in sight to what has been a most disruptive period in our lives.”
