Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has made an order to temporarily close Main Street in Blackrock (i.e. Rock Hill and Main Street to its junction with Temple Road/Carysfort Avenue) to through traffic from Tuesday next the 22nd of April to Friday the 13th of June 2014 inclusive.
This is to allow restoration and road re-surfacing works to be carried out, but local access will be maintained at all times to Bath Place, Idrone Terrace, Blackrock DART Station and the Bus Terminus.
Submissions were invited and a notice seeking objections was issued by the Council last month. I know from speaking to business-owners in Blackrock that they have liaised with the Council on this issue, but I would encourage everyone to go out of the way to shop locally in Blackrock during this time as there is a real danger that local businesses will suffer during the works.
