Kevin Doyle Twitter. THE planned upgrade of one of Dublin's most notorious junctions will not be going ahead at any stage next year. I t was hoped that the postponed improvement of the Newlands Cross junction would be put back on the agenda next year, but the Herald has learned that no fast-tracking will take place.
The de is aimed at creating a totally free-flow junction along the stretch of road, which also includes the Red Cow Roundabout. However, in a move that Dublin Mid-West Senator Frances Fitzgerald FG says will have "enormous repercussions for the area", the plans have been put on long-term hold.
It was said that because of its close proximity to the Red Cow interchange, the junction should be developed as soon as possible. However, a spokesperson for the NRA has now confirmed that it is "postponed indefinitely" and no special arrangements will be made for it to jump the queue. The importance of the scheme was outlined in documents published as part of a public consultation process last September.
They noted: "There are major traffic delays on the N7 progressing through the Newlands Cross junction. By eliminating the need for traffic travelling straight through this junction along the N7 to stop at traffic lights, the situation would be improved for traffic on the Fonthill Road, Belgard Road and for traffic on the N7 wishing to turn right or left. An Bord Pleanala granted planning permission for the project in June this year but despite the massive investment to date, no further progress will be made in Senator Fitzgerald told the Herald that the decision "is indicative of poor prioritising of State money not to invest in the city's infrastructure".
She added: "The State's busiest road, the Red Cow interchange, is currently being upgraded. Work on the proposed upgrade was due to begin early next year and would be completed within one to two years.
