Dublin Airport to close T1 departures road until mid-December

Dublin Airport has announced that the departures road at Terminal 1 will be closed for essential maintenance, from 4am next Monday morning.

The upgrade work is due to be finished by mid-December.

A statement from Dublin Airport said that the move is part of a range of projects to modernise Terminal 1, which is more than 40 years old.

“Over the past 43 years the Terminal 1 departures road has been the main thoroughfare through the airport and it has endured much wear and tear during those four decades,” said Siobhán O’Donnell Dublin Airport’s head of external communications.

“The T1 departures road now needs a comprehensive upgrade and this can only be carried out safely by closing the road to all traffic,” she added.

“The upgrade to the departures road will also enable Dublin Airport to improve the overall arrivals area within Terminal 1.”

Dublin Airport will provide an alternative set down area for customers departing from Terminal 1 at the rear of the T1 multi-storey car park.

A dedicated traffic management system will be in operation throughout the works.
