S2S Cyclic Route - Traffic Management Plans - Shuttle Run Details - Start Date - 01/07/15

As many of you are probably aware, construction has begun on the new cycle track and footway along the James Larkin Road and Clontarf Road. The works begun today, 01/07/15, and will last for a duration of 16 months. The project is part of a 2km cycle track and footway development that will link an overall 8km cycle track around North Dublin Bay together. The works are located between the wooden bridge and the causeway road accesses to Bull Island.

These works will see the construction of 2km of cycle and pedestrian facilities on the eastern side of the existing carriageway and kerb realignment and footpath works at locations on the western side. A section of the existing seawall is to be demolished and a new retaining seawall constructed. An existing culvert which runs from St. Anne's Park is to be extended. The associated civil works are being undertaken by KN Group on behalf of the Dublin City Council, and include site clearance, pavement works, kerbing, drainage, ducting, structure demolition, public lighting, CCTV, accommodation works, landscaping and other ancillary works.  

Works shall be restricted to 180m longitudinal sections on the carriageway with this area reduced to one lane creating a shuttle run with a manned Stop/Go system in operation during daytime hours and automatic lights at night-time. The single lane shuttle system will lead to some disruption and delays in the area but are necessary to complete the works. Works begin approximately 300m south of James Larkin Road/Watermill Road Junction extending south towards the Wooden Bridge/Clontarf Road Bridge Junction. Footpath closures will be in operation on both sides of the carriageway at different stages to facilitate the works with temporary mounted diversion signs erected at controlled junction crossings to notify pedestrians.
