“A Part 8 planning scheme was approved for the Blackglen Road / Harold’s Grange Road Improvement Scheme (Sandyford / Ballinteer) in November 2007. Due to the economic downturn, the scheme was put on hold. A revised Part 8 was approved by the Council in June 2016. CPO (Compulsory Purchase Order) was published on 19th April 2018 and confirmed on 13th February 2019. The 3km scheme will be constructed on a phased basis as funding becomes available.
In August 2021 the construction contract for the Blackglen Road Improvement Scheme, which is Phase 1 of the overall scheme, was awarded to Murphy International Ltd. It is expected that it will take 18 months to complete the construction works.
Phase 2 will include the improvement works to the Harold's Grange Road. A detailed design will have to be prepared and a CPO will have to be published for this Phase.
