Overview

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority and Transport Infrastructure Ireland, is currently preparing plans to carry out safety improvements on Brewery Road at the junction with Stillorgan Road (N11) to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. This is arising from road safety issues identified at the junction.

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.
