Glenamuck Distributor Road
The new junction layout at the western entrance to Stillorgan Village in South County Dublin. Phase 1 of the Stillorgan Village Area Movement Framework Plan set out to create a vibrant, multifunctioning gateway area into Stillorgan Village. Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council sought DBFL’s expertise to improve existing junction layouts, address road safety concerns and provide for enhanced pedestrian and cycling connectivity in conjunction with Public Realm improvements developed by our partners Áit Urbanism & Landscape.
The proposed design needed to satisfy the conflicting functional requirements of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists within a busy village core area, whilst also delivering an enhanced Public Realm in accordance with the principles of the Design Manual for Urban Roads & Streets. Managing this interaction between different road users along the route and delivering an attractive, welcoming environment was one of the key challenges in undertaking the scheme.
DBFL produced a design which encourages movement, usability and accessibility for people of all ages by providing high quality crossing facilities and links along identified desire lines to serve schools, businesses and other Village Amenities. A pocket park provided within the centre of the scheme further enhances the regeneration of the area, whilst also providing a strong visual and sensory pathway into the village.
