Crumlin Village Environmental Improvement Scheme
***Works have now been completed****
General description of the works
The proposed scheme is an area improvement scheme which will greatly improve the general appearance of the area and is also intended to improve safety for all road users, in particular pedestrians and cyclists.
This will be achieved by greatly reducing the size of the junction of St Agnes Road and Windmill Road which in turn will reduce vehicle approach speeds, allow for segregated cycle tracks and reduce pedestrian crossing distances.
The works extend along St Agnes Road, from the junction with Windmill Road running westward as far as Crumlin Garda Station. The works will be phased in order to carry out the works in an efficient manner, minimise disruption to local businesses and the general public.
The Crumlin Village Environmental Improvement Scheme involves the excavation, reconstruction, milling and reconstruction of some streets and the repaving of streets in the area. The works include the improvement of pedestrian crossing facilities, the provision and installation of cycling facilities which include segregated cycle tracks, alterations to current parking bays, upgrading of footpaths with granite kerbs and concrete flags, provision of new public lighting and street furniture in the form of bollards and bins and the replacement of all utility covers and frames within the site extents. The works also include the provision of greening facilities, the inclusion of sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) measures and some intricate recreational seating.
St Agnes Road and Windmill Road are currently open to two-way vehicular traffic all day. Traffic management will be a major part of the proposed works, with the safety of pedestrians and other road users remaining paramount throughout the construction period.
Access to and egress from all premises will be maintained at all times. Rubbish collection and deliveries should also continue as normal.
