Here are the changes coming to Dublin Airport in the next few weeks

A revamp of T1 will be carried out soon.

There will be a few changes coming to Dublin Airport over the next few weeks as abseilers are fixing roofing on the T1 building.

This will cause a few roads to close and diversions will be set in place.

The Dublin Airport website reads: “The Departures Road at Dublin Airport’s Terminal 1 will be temporarily closed from April 17 until the end of May between 23.30 and 03.00 every Monday to Thursday night to allow for upgrade works to T1.

“Between 19.00 and 23.30 each night during the works the T1 Departures Road will be reduced to one lane. A full closure of the Departures Road is required from 23.30 until 03.00.

The reduced access is required to facilitate the construction of a safety platform to allow repair works overhead to proceed safely to the façade of T1.

“The safety platform is needed as the works will be carried out by a specialist abseiler and by repair crews working from a cradle suspended from the roof of T1. The job will include repairs to the concrete fins on the exterior of T1 and spot repairs to some steel columns and beams.”

Make sure you remember if you’re travelling in or out of the airport in the next few weeks, or even if you’re dropping someone off… it’ll be a mess to be caught up in!
