• Madras Street will be down to one lane from Latimer Square north to Bealey Avenue
• Barbadoes Street and Tuam Street intersection – it is expected that from Monday 9 June (weather dependent) there will be no through route for vehicles westbound on Tuam Street across Barbadoes Street. This is expected to last 10 days

Drivers are reminded
• Use the four avenues for cross-town journeys - go around rather than through.
• Fitzgerald Avenue is a reliable route for both north and southbound journeys.
• Use Montreal Street for northbound travel.
• To access the Central City from Bealey Avenue, use Colombo Street and Manchester Street.
