Glenamuck Distributor Road



Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council

DBFL have been appointed by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to design and deliver the Glenamuck District Roads Scheme.  The delivery of the scheme will
significantly improve the multi-modal transport infrastructure in the Glenamuck/ Carrickmines/Kiltiernan area.


The roads scheme is a vital infrastructural project to support the development within the Local Area Plan lands of between 2,600-3,000 residential units and to act as a bypass road corridor for the village core of Kiltiernan.  The scheme consists of:

The Glenamuck District Distributor Road: Approximately 890 metres of four lane dual carriageway and 660 metres of two-lane single carriageway road which will connect the existing R117 Enniskerry Road with the Glenamuck Road / Golf Lane Roundabout.


approximately 1800 m of two lane single carriageway road, which will connect the new Glenamuck District Distributor road with the existing Glenamuck Road, Ballycorus Road, Barnaslingan Lane and Enniskerry Road.


All associated landscaping, traffic signals, utility works, landowner


Accommodation works and surface water drainage measures including


Several large attenuation ponds


DBFLs scope of works required the development of the scheme from preliminary
design to preparation and submission of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) and all associated planning documentation. DBFL produced overall deposit maps and serving maps for Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPOs) affecting over 40 separate
landowners. DBFL are also engaged to progress the scheme through tender, award
construction and handover.


Extensive consultation was carried out with affected landowners, community groups and local residents to develop an optimised design which accommodated environmental constraints and the varying needs of residents, developers and the local authority.

A detailed traffic modelling exercise was undertaken to ensure the scheme catered for predicted traffic flows in the area. Particular focus was placed on sustainable travel modes including the provision of high-quality infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists and junction priority for public transport.


Planning and CPO documentation for the scheme was submitted to An Bord Pleanála in March 2019. This project was completed within the agreed timelines and budget. The project value is €20 million.
