We would like to acknowledge that recent traffic light switch outs in Deansgrange Village have caused increased traffic congestion between 10 am and 4 pm. However, we are pleased to inform you that the most disruptive element of the road works is almost over. The contractor made substantial progress during these work periods. As a result, the majority of the future works on Kill Lane can be completed without the need to switch out traffic lights. Moreover, there will be no more traffic light switch outs on Thursdays or Fridays.

 We understand that such traffic congestion can sometimes test people’s patience. While we apologize for any inconvenience caused, we ask for your understanding and patience, particularly towards our traffic management operatives who have marshalled people and vehicles safely through the junction over the last two weeks (some of whom have experienced verbal abuse). Safety is of primary importance, and for this reason, 10 traffic management operatives have been assigned to the junction. They have performed their duties diligently in a testing environment. We ask members of the public to be respectful to workers who are simply doing their job. 

  • Please comply with Stop/Go directions.
  • Please do not distract the traffic management operatives while carrying out their duties.
  • Respect the personal space of traffic management operatives. 
  • Drive carefully through the road works areas.

They will be installing a one-way system on Deansgrange Road between St. Fintans Villas and Kill Lane on Monday the 18th of September to facilitate the works.

Friday, 8th September 2023: The public consultation for this scheme closed on 27 October 2022.DLR has reviewed all the feedback and comments received. The Chief Executive’s Report on the Public Consultation was brought to the Elected Members. The report and its recommendations were noted by Councillors and amended by resolution at the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council meeting on 13 March 2023.

The Consultation Report, EIA & AA Screening Report Addendum, Amended drawings and Deansgrange FAQs are available to read here: Active Travel Improvements: Deansgrange Cycle Route Scheme 

 

Background

Deansgrange cycle route scheme proposed project

The Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (DLR) Active School Travel project is centred on the concept of providing a connected and safe network of walking and cycling routes to schools across the county, and this concept has been emphasised from project inception in August 2020.

The Sea to Mountains route will link east to west across the County. Starting at Blackrock Dart Station, crossing the N11 to Deerpark. It will then continue south linking to the Sandyford Cycle Route and Kilmacud Luas Stop and on to the Slang River Greenway and Wicklow Way.

The Park to Park route will link north to south across the county. Starting at the coast at Blackrock Dart Station and then joining the existing pathways in Rockfield Park. From there it will continue south along Deansgrange Road linking to the Loughlinstown to Deansgrange Greenway and ending by linking south to the coast.

The Mountains to Metals route will link east-west across the county. Starting at the Sandyford Cycle Route, linking to the Sea to Mountains Route, the route also links up to the Park to Park route, north through residential areas and new developments and on to the Metals.

The proposed routes aim to connect quiet residential streets with existing safe walking and cycling infrastructure, to create a joined-up network.

Need for this project:

Dublin is the 17th most congested city in the world. Car ownership levels in Ireland have risen exponentially over the last 30 years.

Data showing car ownership levels in Ireland have risen exponentially over the last 30 years

(Source: CSO)

No new roads are being built to keep up with this increased demand and there are no options to increase traffic capacity on the existing roads. This means that congestion levels will continue to deteriorate if alternatives are not provided. Both local and national policies are directing that we reduce C02 emissions by half in the next 7 years. This means that almost half of the current car trips need to be converted to sustainable traffic trips to meet these objectives. The Bus Connects plan is proposing high-quality public transport for DLR which will provide improved public transport. For other areas, a high-quality walking and cycling network is required.

Current Project Status:

Over the last 3 years, DLR has been implementing the Active School Travel network. The last remaining section to be completed is Deansgrange Road. During this time DLR had proposed a variety of different design options for Deansgrange Road. There has been a series of public engagements both statutory and non-statutory. In March 2023 the Elected Members of DLR voted to approve a scheme on Deansgrange Road that provides for two-way traffic and two-way cycling on the road. This design requires the removal of public parking along Deansgrange Road.

FAQ

You can contact:

 

The works are programmed to take approximately 8 months.

The provision of the cycle facility requires a new concrete kerb at the edge of the car lanes. This will require a trench to be dug along Deansgrange Road and the kerb poured into the trench. The trench needs to be wider than the kerb to facilitate the machine access and extra space is required to allow safe space for workers. This leaves insufficient space to maintain two-way traffic (even if the parking is removed).

The use of a stop/go set-up would result in more significant congestion in this area. For example, if the section of Deansgrange Road was done in 100m sections using a stop/go system this would usually take 3-5mins between ‘go’ cycles. The junction at Deansgrange Road typically cycles every 2 minutes. This means that there would be two changes of the lights at the junction before you get a ‘go’ at the stop/go system. This would quickly backlog traffic in both directions on Deansgrange Road. The use of stop/go would also not resolve the issue around having to keep the trench for the kerb open until the kerb is poured. The use of stop/go would also require the removal of parking on Deansgrange Road once set up. The provision of a one-way system allows for the retention of parking for a longer period.  

The one-way system will be installed on Deansgrange Road south of St Fintan’s Villas and continuing up to the junction with Kill Lane. This will be in place for 6 months. The section between St Fintans Villas and the Rowanbyrn junction will be done as a subsequent traffic management phase.

Image removed.

Vehicles travelling north on the N11 will be diverted initially via Johnstown Road / Pottery Road. For vehicles that continue past this junction, they will be diverted via the N11 – Newtownpark Ave. Vehicles approaching the works from Clonkeen Road will be diverted left via the N11.

Data collection noted that 75% of the northbound traffic on Deansgrange Road drives through the area. This means that 75% of the existing traffic starts and ends their journeys outside these areas. If these vehicles follow the signed diversion route this will result in less traffic in this area.

 

Yes, the northbound bus service is diverted via Abbey Road for the duration of the works:

Image removed.

The bus will stop at the bus stops along the diversion route. There are bus stops on Kill Lane close to the NCT centre here: https://www.google.com/maps/@53.2793962,-6.1621844,3a,75y,35.07h,85.98t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sN7uyyrMRdWc4hDlL3BShow!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?entry=ttu

Abbey Road is part of the proposed cycle network and requires high-quality facilities in addition to Deansgrange Road. A network of cycle routes is required to provide sustainable options for users.

  • St Fintans Park / Villas: These exits onto Deansgrange Road are outside the one-way system so movements are unrestricted. When exiting onto Deansgrange Road you will be permitted to turn left and right. When returning via Deansgrange Road you must enter via the northern end.

 

  • Brookville Park / Grange Grove: These exits onto Deansgrange Road are outside the one-way system so movements are unrestricted. When exiting onto Deansgrange Road you will be permitted to turn left and right. When returning via Deansgrange Road you must enter via the northern end.

 

  • Grange Terrace: You must enter Deansgrange Road from the northern end and exit through the one-way system.

 

  • Deansgrange Cemetery: You must enter Deansgrange Road from the northern end and exit through the one-way system. In addition, the northern entrance to the Cemetery will be closed for the duration of the works. Vehicular access to the cemetery will be via the main entrance. This has been communicated to the funeral directors.

 

  • Kill Lane area east of Deansgrange Road: There is an existing no-right turn ban at this location so access is unchanged.

 

  • Kill Lane area west of Deansgrange Road: There are two diversion options for local residents, via the N11 / Newtownpark Ave or via Kill Lane / Abbey Road.

 

  • Clonkeen Road Area: There are two diversion options for local residents via the N11 / Newtownpark Ave or via Kill Lane / Abbey Road

Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the works.

Yes, pedestrian and cycle access are maintained but the northern entrance will be restricted. The pedestrian/cycle and vehicular gates at the tea rooms will be available. Signage will be provided directing people to the alternative routes.  

Cyclists access to Deansgrange Road northbound will be diverted for the duration of the one-way system similar to the vehicular traffic.
