Temporary bus stop at Fair Green during Railway Street works

Fairgreen

A temporary bus stop will be located at the Fairgreen, Navan, outside St Mary's Church from Thursday 4th July to replace the stop at the Mercy Convent which will not be in operation during works on Railway Street.

The new bus stop will serve as a northbound 109, 109A 109x drop off and pick up point and the last stop for the 103x and Navan Express for the duration of the road closure, which is expected to continue to the end of August. Market Square will continue to be used as the stop for sounthbound services.

During the work Railway Street will be closed to traffic from 10pm on 3rd July to facilitate underground works. This will then allow for one-way traffic to return to Railway Street while the remainder of the works on the street are completed  such as new footpaths, public lighting upgrades and fibre broadband connections. These works are expected to continue to the end of January next year.

Meath County Council said it is anticipated there will be delays and disruption while the works are ongoing. The council will work with the contractor to minimise these as far as practicable.

The work is part of the Navan 2030 project which will see a complete overhaul of the town's traffic system including opening Railway Street to two way traffic.
