The R131 and Dublin Port

The R131 is a link road on the east side of Dublin running from south of Drumcondra to Merrion, crossing the River Liffey by means of the East Link toll bridge in Dublin Port. It provides a form of eastern bypass for the city, used by traffic from south of the Liffey wishing to use the M50 Dublin Tunnel and Alfie Byrne Road (the R834) towards Clontarf. The R131 passes across a railway in the port area north of the river, this has occasional trains operated in tramway fashion, with manual control. It also crosses the southbound DART railway line at a convetional level crossing at Merrion Gates just before ending on the R118. While synchronisation of traffic signals has mitigated the issues, this crossing is a cause of traffic delays and accidents and a bridge has long been proposed at this location. The levels make a bridge at this exact location problematic and a €50m 2016 plan proposes a new junction 280m closer to the city than the level crossing, the gap between the R131 and the R118 at this point being wide enough to allow a bridge over the railway.
