Extend HGV ban ?
Currently the ban operates from 07.00hrs to 19.00hrs, while the proposed changes would see the Cordon extending from either 06.00hrs or 07.00hrs to 12 midnight.
Since the HGV 5+ axle Cordon came into force in February 2007, over 4,000 HGVs per day have been removed from the City’s streets. The current proposal would see an additional 120 trucks approximately diverted away from the City’s streets.
Detailed information on the HGV Management Strategy, together with a copy of the report can be viewed here. Submissions can be made to Dublin City Council and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5.30pm on Friday, 7th December 2012. Mary
