Gardaí Make Changes To Checkpoints To Provide HGV-Only Lanes


From 7am this morning, alterations have been introduced to two specific designated checkpoints on the N7 (Junction 6) and M2 (Junction 2).

A new traffic layout has been introduced at these checkpoints which provides a dedicated HGV only lane to minimise delay or disruption to business distribution.

Signage will be in place prior to reaching the checkpoints and the right hand lane (lane 3) will be available for HGVs only.

“We would ask all motorists to follow the signage and that HGV drivers reduce their speed as they approach the Garda checkpoints as they still may be required to stop,” a Garda spokesman said.

More than 130 static checkpoints were erected on motorways and other arterial routes across the country yesterday morning as part of Level 3 restrictions.
