Public Consultation: Monkstown Road Cycle Route

Thursday, June 28, 2018
Intro Text 

We are preparing plans to introduce a cycle route on Monkstown Road from Monkstown Village to Temple Hill in Blackrock. A Non-Statutory Public Consultation for the above scheme in accordance with Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994 is being undertaken by our Traffic & Road Safety Section. Submissions and observations on the scheme as proposed are welcome.


The main works to be carried out as part of the proposed cycle scheme include the following:

  1. Introduction of a cycle lane in both directions within the existing carriageway. 
  2. Removal of the central hatching road markings along Monkstown Road.
  3. Installation of speed alert signs along the route.
  4. In addition to the introduction of a cycle route, the scheme aims to reduce traffic speeds along Monkstown Road in the interest of the safety of all road users.
