N11 Brewery Road Improvement Scheme

DĂșn Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority and Transport Infrastructure Ireland, is currently preparing plans to carry out safety improvements on Brewery Road at the junction with Stillorgan Road (N11) to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. This is arising from road safety issues identified at the junction.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Traffic & Road Safety Section, is undertaking a Non-Statutory Public Consultation for the above Scheme in accordance with Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994 and welcomes all submissions and observations on the scheme as proposed.

Scheme Details:

In line with the requirements of the National Cycle Manual and the Design Manual for Urban Roads and Streets, the works to be carried out as part of the proposed safety improvement scheme includes the following:

  • Provision of traffic islands on Brewery Road to prevent inappropriate overtaking and traffic movements on Brewery Road with some traffic lane re-alignment.
  • Reconfiguration of the junction of St. Brigid’s Church Road and Brewery Road with one lane only exiting onto Brewery Road and reduced entry radii provided at the junction entry and exit to reduce speeds and provide a  shorter crossing width for pedestrians.
  • Provision of a new footway on part of north side of Brewery Road from the bus stop to the N11 including the provision of a raised pedestrian platform  on St. Brigid’s Church Road.
  • Enhanced facilities for cyclists on the north side of Brewery Road linking to the existing cycle route on the N11
  • Left turn pocket provided on the N11 approaching the junction in the city bound direction in line with Section 4.5.3 of the National Cycle Manual for busy highly trafficked routes

This Scheme will be placed on public display in the offices of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, as follows, from July 31st to August 31st, 2017 and will also be available for viewing on the Council’s website HERE.
