It’ll be interesting to if the Parkway roundabout is replaced.
However, it doesn’t seem a great idea to have a set down area on the Childer’s Road. Even with the current shopping centre, wouldn’t it have been far better to have slips off the Childers Road and onto the Dublin road from the sides of the car park, so not all traffic has to use the roundabout exit.
A lot of the traffic problems are due to conflicting movements between Childer’s Road->Castletroy and Castletroy-City. Exacerbated in the last year or so by queues back to the roundabout on the Dublin Road from the St. Patrick’s Road traffic lights. Short of adding filters at those lights for left turns in and out of St. Patricks Road (would probably need at least the house on the corner knocked), longer queue box and less frequent phases for right turns in/out of St. Patrick’s Road, there’s little that can be done, and it’s not likely that solution will be pursued.
Anyways, the entire area will be a disaster when the Parkway Valley opens, nevermind the added complications of the second set of lights and traffic at the hotel and retail park.
We’re pretty much doomed, car users as well as bus users.
