Re: Re: Before the Bulldozers: Images of a Doomed Suburb
The new road converts some cul-de-sacs into a distributor road. The EIS predicted this would cut 30 seconds off the car journey time between stillorgan and dun laoghaire. There are scraps of bus lane along the new route but it is mostly single carriageway. So there is virtually no time benefit to the route yet it will add capacity to the road network and change sleepy residential cul-de sacs into through routes.
The right thing to do here would have been a cycle path or a bus only through-route, preserving local car access.
As alonso says the argument is now over and everyone had their say. This is Owen Keegan’s contribution to transport in Dun Laoghaire.
