*** Project Update – New Bridge Traffic ***
As part of the N3 Snugborough Interchange Upgrade in Blanchardstown, traffic was diverted onto new N3 overbridge on the 20th December to allow for refurbishment of the older bridge.
The diversion for pedestrians to the newer bridge will remain until completion of the refurbishment in March.

BAM Civil Ltd. are delighted to have been appointed by Fingal County Council, with co-funding from the National Transport Authority, to undertake the Snugborough Interchange Upgrade Scheme, a complex undertaking but with the goal of introducing significant improvements to the area for pedestrians, cyclists, public transport users and motorists.
This Project includes the construction of a second bridge over the N3 adjacent to the existing Snugborough Road, with new pedestrian and cyclist facilities being provided throughout, along with bus priority measures and additional lanes for turning movements.
The Snugborough Interchange is currently programmed to be completed above road level in late March. This will facilitate traffic across the new bridge including cars, bicycles and pedestrians. The work on completing the underpasses will be the last element of the works and will be completed during April.
Substantial traffic management will be required on the Snugborough Road, Waterville Road and surrounding road networks as works progress on site. Every effort will be made to minimise the disruption throughout the works.
