Traffic & Road Safety Section: Churchtown Road Upper- Traffic Calming & Cycle Scheme

Closed 11 Mar 2022

Opened 11 Feb 2022


Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is proposing to carry out traffic calming works on Churchtown Road Upper between the junctions of Braemor Road and Hillside Road. The works will include the provision of cycle tracks and pedestrian crossing points. The Scheme will be implemented under Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994.

The Council is undertaking a Non-Statutory Public Consultation to help inform the design and welcomes all submissions and observations on the proposals.

Scheme Details

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council are developing a traffic calming scheme for Churchtown Road Upper. The aims of the scheme are to reduce vehicular speeds in the area and to improve pedestrian and cycling facilities.

Wide carriageways encouraging higher vehicular speeds and a lack of good quality pedestrian crossing points and cycle facilities were key challenges to be considered as part of the design process. A preliminary design has been developed to address these challenges. 

The proposed works are intended to:  

  • Provide traffic calming on Churchtown Road Lower by narrowing the road width, installing raised tables at key junctions and tightening junction radii to reduce vehicular speeds in the area.
  • Provide improved pedestrian infrastructure by reducing crossing distances at junctions and installing pedestrian crossing points at key locations.
  • Provide new high quality cycling infrastructure.
  • Provide a safer school zone in the area around De La Salle College.

Details of the proposals are outlined in the documents accompanying this notice.
