Port Tunnel weekend prices to drop by half

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."
