The North Road within the Phoenix Park runs parallel to Blackhorse Avenue on the northern side of Phoenix Park. Adjacent local communities currently access the Park via a number of gates located along the North Road. It is planned that the North Road, between Ratra House and Garda Head Quarters, will be resurfaced along with the adjoining footpaths. The project involves the removal and disposal of existing road surface and relaying of new road surface, taking up, cleaning and relaying of existing granite kerbs and the removal and disposal of existing footpath and relaying of new footpath surface. Other ancillary works will include installation of traffic calming ramps along the 2.5 kilometre stretch of road.
