Templeogue Road queue relocation signals
To prevent down-stream congestion at Terenure Cross the queuing traffic is moved to the upstream section on the wider section of Templeogue Road which has sufficient capacity to contain the queue. The bus lane on this wider section allows buses to overtake the queue, and travel unhindered down the uncongested section of road. The signals are not demanded by approaching buses but operate when a queue length of 100 metres is detected on the approach to the junction of Templeogue Road/Terenure Road West.
