The plans for a new signalised junction (see image 3) to replace the existing roundabout appear to show dedicated lanes to partially separate traffic heading to the shopping centre and traffic heading elsewhere.
Quite some changes in store for the vicinity of this junction. The future St. Nessanâ€™s road in direction of the city will have to climb in order to cross over (flyover) the railway line, the Ballynaclough river and the N7 dual carriageway.
The T-shaped junction has a few improvements, but also it seems to have created a few more snags.
Firstly the way into town has a slipway to avoid the junction traffic lights.
Similarly coming from town, a slipway turning off left into the shopping thus avoiding the junction.
Coming from the regional and entering the shopping centre at the junction is the first flaw as there appears to be two lanes to be merged into one at the entrance. Or is one of the lanes designated for a right turn onto the Dooradoyle link road?
The second flaw in my opinion is to include an exit from the Shopping centre at the junction. Imagine city bound traffic coming out here and wanting to turn right against on coming traffic from the regional. Further McDriveâ€™s entrance looks problematic.
