Further changes to the cycle paths on the N11 in Dublin are planned by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.

Details of the plans are included in preliminary design published as part of the non-statutory public consultation for the “N11 Quality of Service Improvements” project for the section of the N11 between Brewery Road to Stillorgan Park Road.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The changes include footpath improvements, bus stop upgrades, the removal of a limited number of slip turns, and cycling elements.

The cycling features include replacing long lengths of shared use paths with separate cycle paths and footpaths; wider cycle paths; new or wider cycle lanes at junctions and leading onto the N11; bus stop bypasses for cyclists behind most bus stops; and turn left to go right arrangements at major junctions.

The council says: “This scheme will significantly improve road safety for all road users along the N11 between the junction of Brewery Road and the junction of Stillorgan Park Road.”

Submissions and observations can be emailed to traffic@dlrcoco.ie before Friday April 25. Details and drawings can be found at dlrcoco.ie.
