Active Travel: Blackrock Park to Trimleston Avenue Sustainable Travel Improvements

Closed 27 Apr 2022

Opened 6 Apr 2022


Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority, is proposing sustainable transport improvements on the Rock Road between Blackrock Park and Trimleston Avenue.  

The Active Travel Section proposes to undertake a Non-Statutory Public Consultation for the above Scheme and welcomes all submissions and observations on the scheme as proposed. The scheme is being prepared in accordance with Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994.  

Scheme Details: 

The proposed scheme builds on the recently completed works at the entrance to Blackrock Park opposite Booterstown Avenue and continues north to the Trimleston Avenue junction. 

The scheme proposes to: 

  • Introduce a two-way cycle facility on the north side of the Rock Road from the entrance to Blackrock Park to the Trimleston Avenue junction. 
  • Provide bus priority for outbound bus services at the Booterstown Avenue junction.
  • Alter traffic islands at the various junctions to improve road alignment and facilitate the introduction of the two-way cycle facility on the seaside. 
  • Create an island style bus stop at bus stop 426. 
  • Introduce a new pedestrian crossing at the Trimleston Avenue junction (northern arm of the junction). 
  • Provide bus priority measures at the Trimleston Avenue junction.  

The proposed scheme aligns with the proposed Bus Connects project. If the Bus Connects project is successful in gaining statutory approval only minor junction changes would be required in addition to this project.  

The scheme has been designed to facilitate an extension into the Dublin City Council area. If they choose to continue this scheme to Merrion Gate and beyond, only lining changes would be required in the dlr area to create a tie in.
