Drivers face ten weeks of disruption
WICKLOW’S hard pressed motorists have been warned that they face 10 weeks of traffic disruption.
The town’s Market Square is to be sealed off from all sides as work gets underway on redesigning the town’s main public area.
Traffic will be diverted around the area via High Street, Kilmantin Hill, Goal Road, Hospital Lane, Castle Street and Quarantine Hill.
But the good news is that a new bus service is being introduced in the town to help commuters with parking problems.
The service, which is free, will be run by Wicklow County Council and extends from the free car park on the Murrough through various parts of the town.
Its launch, for a trial period, coincides with the Market Square improvement works. Buses will run from 8 and 10 a.m. and between 4.30 and 6.30 p.m., Monday to Friday, at the rate of four per hour and allow people to park in the Murrough car park and then be transported free to the town centre.
