Overview

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority, is currently preparing plans to carry out improvements on Clonskeagh Road near UCD from the junction with Nutgrove Park/Belfield Close to north of the junction with Annsbrook. The scheme aims to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Traffic & Road Safety Section, is undertaking a Non-Statutory Public Consultation for the above Scheme in accordance with Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994 and welcomes all submissions and observations on the scheme as proposed.

Scheme Details:

In line with the requirements of the National Cycle Manual and the Design Manual for Urban Roads and Streets, the main works to be carried out as part of the proposed scheme include the following:

  • Enhanced facilities for cyclists on the both sides of Clonskeagh Road including the provision of 2.0m wide cycle tracks / cycle lanes and enhanced transitions for cyclists through junctions.
