The National Roads Authority (NRA) has announced that it will reduce toll charges at the Dublin Port Tunnel by 50pc on weekends and Bank Holidays - starting immediately.
Tolls will be reduced from €6.00 to €3.00 at all times on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
The NRA decision to reduce toll rates follows on from a commitment at the opening of the new tunnel to review weekend charges. Upon the completion of a detailed 6-month assessment on traffic counts, the Authority's Board approved the lower rate of €3.00.
Fred Barry, chief executive, NRA said - "In adopting a lower weekend price structure, the NRA is playing its part in contributing to effective traffic management, which will assist traffic-flows during weekend events and allow drivers easier access to and from Dublin airport."
