Removal of Flashing Amber Light on N11-Stillorgan Road
Question: Councillor B. Ward
“To ask the Manager if the amber flashing light can be removed from the sequence of the pedestrian crossing facility that is in place across the N11-Stillorgan Road midway between Priory Drive and Trees Road junctions. The crossing sequence is barely long enough for pedestrians to cross the road, and traffic is not giving way to pedestrians during the flashing amber phase since there are several other traffic signals in the immediate vicinity?”
This pedestrian crossing is in the process of being upgraded and when completed the flashing amber that traffic currently get will be removed. In the new sequence the pedestrian will get a “green man” and then an “amber man” and traffic will see a red light at this time. Then the pedestrian will get a “red man” and two seconds later traffic will receive a green light to proceed. The upgrade of the signal heads and the changes to the sequences is due to take place after Easter.
