Intro Text 

Status:  Scheme approved by Council on 4th July 2016.  Construction commenced on Monday 24th April 2017.  An information meeting was held in St. Patrick's Parish Centre on Thursday 20th April between 6 - 8 p.m.  

The proposed traffic management phasing is attached.  Also attached is a list of frequently asked questions.

Phase 1 will involve the path works around the Church of Ireland and will require parking bays to be suspended.  Clifton Avenue is being made one-way from the commencement of the contract and parking will also be restricted on Clifton Avenue during the works.  Phase 1 is expected to run from April to June 2017.

The following works have been completed:

  • Ducting works along south side of Monkstown Crescent including public lighting / fibre optic and ESB
  • ESB cabling has been installed in preparation for the removal fo the overhead cables
  • Concreting works have been completed (with the exception of 1 bay adjacent to the ESB mini pillar)
  • Paving works are progressing around the Church of Ireland and are expected to be completed in the next two weeks
  • Concreting works are completed on Carrickbrennan Road
  • Ducting works are completed on Carrickbrennan Road
  • Preparatory works have been completed on the pedestrian crossing adjacent to St. Patrick's Church
  • Ducting works are ongoing between That's Amore and Goggins and paving is scheduled to commence in August/September

Upcoming works:  The contractor will be making the area between the Ring and the Church of Ireland two way from Wednesday 16th August at 8am.  A traffic management plan will be in place to assist motorists.  Clifton Avenue will be made one way at this time and will remain one way as per the permanent design.  These changes will facilitate the commencement of works to the Ring.

An Improvement scheme has been developed for Monkstown Village which will improve road safety, traffic management and the public realm.

In summary, the scheme includes:

- Raised signalised and uncontrolled crossing points

- One way on Clifton Avenue (towards the sea)

- Build outs to slow vehicle turning movements

- Narrowing of the carriageway through the village

- Additional parking on Clifton Avenue

- Upgraded surfaces

- Landscaping
