Directly adjoining different granite types, from different countries, is just jarring visually. It’s like something out of your nearest paving display area and just doesn’t work.

Contrasting the lovely Leinster granite with the bland Portugese stuff only serves to highlight what might have been.

Significant quantities of Irish granite are being used, enough it seems to have covered the central median, why then they couldn’t have used this fine stone in the most prominent location and contrasted it against a sett pattern, or something of a different hue altogether is beyond me.

I’ve no issue with the concept of a way finding strip, but in what seems to be emblematic of this job, they’ve gone and crudely sliced the Leinster granite, the good stuff, with some rumble strip slabs borrowed from the RPA. Subtle.

Thanks for the pics Stephen.
