Active Travel Improvements: DLR Central

In accordance with Part 8, Article 81 of the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001 (as amended), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council hereby gives notice of a proposal to construct as follows:

High-quality pedestrian and cycling infrastructure to promote active travel on: Kill Avenue (R830), Mounttown Road Lower (R829), Mounttown Road Upper (R829) & Glenageary Road Upper (R829), Dún Laoghaire. It is proposed to install continuous, high-quality, and segregated cycling and walking facilities; improved public realm areas including incidental play features; improved bus priority along Kill Avenue up to the Bakers Corner Junction & provide improved landscaping along the extent of the scheme including sustainable urban drainage systems.

In accordance with S.I. 476, 2011, Section 250, Planning and Development (Amendment) (No.3) Regulations, 2011 and S.I. 296, 2018 European Union (Planning and Development) (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2018, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has carried out screenings and has determined the following:

  • An Appropriate Assessment is not required.
  • There is no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment so therefore, the preliminary assessment has concluded that an Environmental Impact Assessment Report is not required.

Any person may, within 4 weeks from Thursday 25th August 2022 apply to An Bord Pleanála for an EIA screening determination as to whether the development would be likely to have significant effects on the environment.

  • I fully support improvements on these roads. Please make sure the cycle lanes are sufficiently wide. It’s also very important that junctions are well designed.

  • All improved segregated cycling and pedestrian infrastructure is to be welcomed. Please ensure that all new cycle lanes are a minimum of 1.5m wide each, NOT including drains. Counter-sunk drains (such as are on the cycle lane in both directions on Newtownpark Avenue) are extremely dangerous for non-standard cycles, such as trikes, Cycling Without Age trishaws, cargo bikes etc. All junctions must give priority to pedestrians and cyclists. All traffic light ‘beg buttons’ should respond immediately. Add advance cycle lights at all traffic light junctions. Design all the routes with active, sustainable travel for all ages in mind from design out.
