New Monastery Road upgrading will be major plus for pedestrians

By Brendan Grehan

THE UPGRADING of pedestrian facilities on Monastery Road in Clondalkin are due to be completed by the end of April according to South Dublin County Council. SDCC have apologised for the inconvenience caused.

The project involves the upgrading of pedestrian facilities on Monastery Road in order to improve general walking conditions on the section of Monastery Road between Monastery Walk and Castle Park in Clondalkin.

It is part of an ongoing project earmarked for the improvement of walking and cycling facilities from Clondalkin Village to Redcow Luas Station and the works constitute Phase Three of the project.

The project will entail the provision of zebra crossings, raised table-top ramps with raised pedestrian crossing on side roads at junctions, bus ramps, narrowing of Monastery Road between Monastery Walk and Monastery Park to six metres and consequential widening and renewal of footpaths on Monastery Road.

SDCC has been granted additional funding by the NTA (National Transport Authority) to extend the scheme further towards the village.

The scheme is now going as far as the west side of Castle Park junction. The additional work will include the provision of two zebra crossings, two raised table-top ramps with raised pedestrian crossings on side roads at junctions and renewing and widening of footpaths both sides of Monastery Road.
