Glenamuck Distributor Road
DBFL were 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 of Kiltiernan.
The scheme consists of approximately 890 metres of four lane dual carriageway and 660 metres of two-lane single carriageway road connecting the existing R117 Enniskerry Road with the Glenamuck Road / Golf Lane Roundabout, approximately 1800 m of two lane single carriageway road, connecting the new Glenamuck District Distributor road with the existing Glenamuck Road, Ballycorus Road, Barnaslingan Lane and Enniskerry Road.
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.
