Killiney Road / Ballinclea Road

Accident Investigation and Prevention Scheme

 

Introduction and background:

 

In 2008, WSP Consulting Engineers were appointed to review traffic collisions in the Killiney / Ballinclea area and to develop a road safety scheme. This scheme recommended road safety measures for both roads and a redesign of the Killiney Road / Ballinclea Road junction. Due to funding constraints at the time the redesign of the Killiney Road / Ballinclea Road junction was the only part of the scheme to be installed.

 

Due to on-going safety concerns for the remainder of Ballinclea Road and Killiney Road, Traffic Section re-assessed the scheme in 2014.

 

 

Proposed Scheme:

 

The scheme now proposed provides for:

  • A slight realignment of the cycle track on Avondale Road to improve the road alignment at its junction with Ballinclea Road 
  • A new path, dishing’s and tactile paving on the south side of Ballinclea Road from its junction with Avondale Road up to the existing path at the entrance to Killiney Golf Club. There is no path in this location at present and this link will provide a continuous route along the south side of Ballinclea Road connecting to the existing bus stop
  • A narrowing of the carriageway on Ballinclea Road at its junction with Avondale Road to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians and to reduce vehicle exit speeds onto Avondale Road
  • Centre line hatching east of the Killiney Golf Club entrance to Oakdene to narrow the carriageway and reduce vehicle speeds. Note: residents are permitted to cross this hatching for the purpose of access to their homes
  • 6 no. bus friendly ramps on Ballinclea Road to reduce vehicle speeds. These ramps are similar to the ramps installed on Dalkey Avenue
  • Tightening of the Cluny Grove / Ballinclea Road junction to reduce entry and exit speeds
  • Anti –Skid treatment in advance of the pedestrian crossing on Ballinclea Road
  • A new footway near the entrance to St Josephs of Cluny (opposite Oakdene) linking the two existing paths
  • A ‘rubbing strip’ adjacent to the houses opposite St Josephs of Cluny School to reduce vehicle speeds. There is also an option to install a footway along this section but this will require land acquisition from the residents.  DLR is engaging with these residents on the possibility of acquiring this land
  • 4 new bus friendly ramps on Killiney Road between Ballinclea Road and Dalkey Avenue to reduce vehicle speeds


 

 

Public Consultation:

Public consultation commenced on 28th September and continued until Friday 23rd October 2015. 17 no. submissions were received and these are outlined below:

2

Maud Fitzgerald

Would like to see:

  • The road widened adjacent to houses 9-15 Ballinclea Road
  • The road widened opposite Ballinclea Road on Killiney Hill Road

-DLR was not able to reach agreement with all of the residents of 9-15 Ballinclea Road and will be unable to widen this section.

-The section of Killiney Hill Road opposite Ballinclea Road was recently narrowed to provide a footway and to slow vehicle speeds. It is not proposed to widen it as part of this scheme

3

Eithne Hughes

Suggests that land could be acquired from Cluny school opposite 9-15 Ballinclea Road rather than the houses

DLR is not in a position to acquire lands by compulsory purchase as part of this scheme

4

Nigel Mchugh

 

- Will the ramps affect drainage?

- Will it be centred on the driveway?

 

-The proposed ramps will not affect drainage

-The proposed ramps do not cross driveways

5

Séamus McGloughlin

 

Would like the following additions:

  • Yellow box at Ballinclea Road / Killiney Road jct
  • Better stop signage and warning signage at this junction
  • Ramps from this junction down to Killiney Towers Roundabout
  • Rumble strips on approach to the roundabout
  • The addition of a yellow box will be considered as part of the detailed design
  • The warning signage will also be reviewed
  • It is not proposed to provide ramps down to the roundabout at this stage
  • Rumble strips are not provided in urban areas as they generate too much noise for adjacent homes

6

Cathal Drohan

 

No objections to the scheme in principle

  • Believes the number of ramps on Ballinclea Road is excessive
  • Believes there should be at least two ramps along Ballinclea Road between no. 9-15 and a 30kph speed limit or improved signage
  • The proposed ramp spacing is provided to reduce speeds below 50kph and the spacing is in accordance with the Traffic Management Guidelines
  • Additional ramps at this location will not be required to reduce the speeds below 50kph
  • The inclusion of this section of road for 30kph limit would not be appropriate on this type of route
  • Improved signage will be reviewed as part of the detailed design

Pierse Hurley

Objects to the widening of the road adjacent to his property

Noted

8

Leo Conway 

Suggests the ramps are constructed similar to the ramps on Stillorgan Park Road

The proposed ramps are being installed to the current standards similar to the ramps on Dalkey Avenue

9

Brendan Donohoe
 

- Objects to the scheme.

- The current road surface is poor and should be improved

- Objects to road narrowing

- Objects to ramps

- Objects to junction radii reduction

- Objects to the ghost island markings

- Doesn’t agree that there should be a solid white line around the island markings

 

- The various objections are noted.

- The issue of maintenance will be discussed with the Road Maintenance Section to ensure any opportunities to carry out improvement works are taken

10

Alison Coffey

 

- Objects to the ramp outside her house

- Suggests a give way road narrowing instead

- There is no ramp proposed outside this address

- A give way system would have a negative impact on the traffic flow on Killiney Road

11

Dara O Donnell

 

-Narrowing Wyvern would not allow two cars side by side when exiting

- Suggests a turning ban to restrict one of the movements out

- Supports traffic calming on Ballinclea Road especially the proposed road widening

- Requests the removal of the railings at the Killiney Road / Ballinclea Road junction

- It is not recommended that two cars should be allowed to exit side by side from Wyvern and the proposed narrowing is to improve crossing points for pedestrians and reduce entry/exit speeds

- A turning ban would not be necessary as the traffic flow from Wyvern onto Killiney Hill Road is not enough to cause significant queuing

-There is sufficient visibility for vehicles turning out from Ballinclea Road. It is not proposed to remove the railings

Question relating to traffic calming on the section of Killiney Hill Road from Ballinclea Road to Killiney Towers Roundabout

It is not proposed to install ramps on this section as part of this scheme

16

Ramps should be installed on Killiney Hill Road either side of Ballinclea Road

A ramp is proposed from the upper side of this junction but no ramp is proposed on the lower side as part of this scheme

17

Pete Mantell

-Concerned about turning out of Oakdene

-Requesting DYL on Oakdene on approach to junction with Ballinclea Road

-Recommends speed ramps on Killiney Road from Ballinclea Road to Dalkey Avenue

-Requesting that both roads are resurfaced

-Speed reduction measures are proposed either side of Oakdene

-DYL will be considered as part of the detailed design.

-Speed ramps are proposed for Killiney Road.

-It is not proposed to resurface the roads as part of this scheme but we will liaise with Road Maintenance to ensure any opportunities to improve the road surface are taken.

 

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

It is recommended that the scheme proceed to detailed design and construction in 2016.
