Mounttown Road Lower, Glenageary Road Upper, Kill Lane (part) ***
On Thursday 7th April, the traffic lights were switched on at the junction of Kill Avenue/Honeypark, at the Old Mounttown roundabout junction (Glenageary Road Upper/Kill Avenue/Mounttown Road Lower). A set of pedestrian lights have been switched on along Glenageary Road Upper at the future entrance into the north and south Cosgrave development sites (Old Dun Laoghaire Golf Club lands).
The new traffic signals at the junction of the old Mounttown roundabout have full pedestrian signalised crossings across the 5 roads at the junction. Formerly there was no priority given to pedestrians at this junction. The provision of signalised pedestrian crossings, for pedestrian safety, will lead to queuing for motorists at busy times of the day.
There are still some outstanding works to be completed including the installation of red surfacing for the cyclepaths at junctions, red surfacing at bus stops, the erection of Advance Directional Signage and the finishing of outstanding snagging works. There will be a requirement for Traffic Management measures to be put in place to carry out some of these outstanding finishing works.
All these works are being carried out, by Cosgrave Developments, as part of the Planning Conditions for the adjacent Cosgrave development (Old Dun Laoghaire Golf Club (South).
