    Anyone know what all the road works are about ?

    Huge swathe from Eglington Street to near the Turners Cross exit is now single lane in both directions.

    It needed a complete resurfacing and relining but it looks more substantial than that.

    ESB cabling works, not sure what cabling works but there will have to be a complete overlay when it's finished as they've torn up an entire lane.

    Looks to me like they've dug up an entire lane on both sides.

    Yeah it's cable laying for the ESB. It was mentioned in one of the update bulletins for the Sarsfield/Bandon roundabout works. Have a read of that thread and read the last bulletin posted there.

    Here's the text from it.
     ESB cabling works also got underway this week on the South City Link Road. These works necessitate a closure of one lane in both an inbound and outbound direction and the works are due to be completed by the end of August.

    It's a huge underground cable that connects into Marina power station and various substations on Albert Rd that feed the city's underground distribution network.

    It's planned upgrade works, not a repair. The original cables were laid along the same route back in the 1960s.
