Stillorgan Park Road Walking and Cycle Improvement Scheme

Closes 9 Jul 2021

Opened 26 May 2021

Overview

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority, is proposing to carry out improvements to walking and cycling facilities on Stillorgan Park Road from the N11 to Carysfort Avenue.

The Council's Traffic & Road Safety Section is undertaking 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

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:

  • The provision of raised and adjacent or fully off-road cycle tracks on both sides of the road. The development of segregated cycle routes will provide a safer environment for cyclists.
  • The provision of two new controlled pedestrian crossings along the route near to Stillorgan Park Avenue and Coppinger Glade junctions.
  • A new footway in Patrician Villas to provide a link to the underpass leading to the N11.
  • Smoother transitions for cyclists through junctions and through the roundabout at Park Villas.
  • Better access to side roads from the off-road cycle tracks using a cyclist ramp.
  • Narrowing of road widths along the road to make it easier for cyclists to cross at junctions.
