DBFL were appointed to consult on the Southgreen link road project by Kildare County Council in conjunction with Liffey Developments and Irish Water to create the new link road with incorporated new watermain provisions and sewerage facilities for Irish Water for the adjoining lands and extensive utility service ducting for future proofing of the road.
The finished road will connect the localities of Southgreen, Hill Road, Old Road and Dunmurry Road with Kildare town centre and will provide alternative route options to the M7, Kildare train station, Newbridge and Rathangan.
The scheme involves junction improvements and improved pedestrian and cyclist facilities on the adjoining roads with 500m of 6.5m wide new carriageway with off road cycle lanes and footpaths with 1 roundabout, a staggered junction and a signalised junction.
The works also involve 450m of road resurfacing and junction improvements including traffic signal and public lighting upgrades.
