Scheme Details

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council are developing a village improvement scheme for Stepaside Village. The scheme aims to improve pedestrian and cycling facilities, enhance the public realm and reduce vehicular speeds in the area. The project will be delivered in two phases:

  • Phase I – Cycle connection from Stepaside Park/Cruagh Greenway to St Patricks Park/Stepaside Village (Current Scheme)
  • Phase II – Village Improvement Scheme (Future Scheme)

The proposed works in Phase 1 are as follows:

  • Construction of a two-way segregated cycle track on the northern side of Enniskerry Road, providing a beneficial cycle connection from the Cruagh Greenway to Stepaside Village.
  • Reduction in carriageway width on Enniskerry Road between Stepaside Park and Stepaside Village to encourage slower vehicular speeds on approach to the village.
  • Upgrade of existing footpath on the northern side of Enniskerry Road.
  • Tie in with the proposed signalised junction at Stepaside Park.
  • New raised entry treatment at the entrance to St. Patrick’s Park to facilitate safer pedestrian and cycle movements across the junction.
  • Upgrade of existing signalised pedestrian crossing to new toucan crossing (pedestrian and cycle crossing) in Stepaside Village.
