Plans illustrating the scheme will be on display until Monday 21st October in the following locations:-

Submissions and observations should be sent to the Senior Engineer, Transportation Traffic. County Hall, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire, Co.Dublin or by email to

The closing date for submissions is Monday 21st October.  I would encourage you to take a look at the plans as they might affect you.

Below is a list of some of the items included in the plans that you might like to take a look at:

  • Raised cycle lanes along large sections of the route in particular by Blackrock Shopping Centre, and outside houses on Temple Road and Temple Hill
  • Re-location of the bus stop on the Frascati Road/Blackrock by-pass from its current location near Blackrock Shopping Centre.  It seems that the plan is to move it to near the junction of Temple Road before the Blackrock Dolmen statue.
  • Extra pedestrian crossings at the Carysfort Avenue Frascati Road/Blackrock by-pass junction.
  • Removal of the existing underpass at the Carysfort Avenue Frascati Road/Blackrock by-pass junction.
  • New pedestrian crossing on Frascati Road/Blackrock by-pass at Sweetmans Avenue outside the Garda station.
  • New pedestrian crossing at the entrance to Barclay Court.
  • Traffic leaving Blackrock on Temple Road will not be able to use the slip lane by Frank Keane Motors but will have to join Frascati Road/Blackrock by-pass near the Blackrock Dolmen statue by turning left.
  • Part of the existing slip lane outside Frank Keane motors will only be accessible by buses and cyclists.
  • Existing 2 lanes of right turning traffic on Newtown Avenue will be reduced to one.
  • Tobernea Park will be reduced in size to allow for a new alignment of the left turning lane on Newtown Avenue.
  • On Monkstown Road there will be a ban on the right turn into Temple Crescent.
  • The entrance to Montpelier Place will have bollards to prevent parking on the cycle lane.
  • Shared cycle track and footpath from the junction of Montpelier Place to house no.1 on Stradbrook Road.
  • Removal of second driving lane on Temple Hill from Montpelier Place to Newtownpark Avenue junction.  Alterations to the traffic lights sequence to allow for traffic to clear the junction.
  • Changes to the end of Newtownpark Avenue junction to made provision for a cycle lane.

I would encourage you to have your say and take part in the Public Consultation.
