‘Living Streets Blackrock’ is to give the redesign of the Co Dublin village centre a longer-term finish with added cycling connections.
The highly successful layout was first implemented as a Covid-19 measure providing outdoor dining and general public space by making the main street one-way for motorists.
A new contra-flow cycle lane on the street outside the library will connect with the existing contra-flow lane on Maretimo Villas, creating a more direct southbound cycle route between Blackrock Village and the two-way cycle path section of the Coastal Mobility Route at Seapoint Ave.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council said that the project will include “high-quality permanent materials to create a consistent look and feel for the village” and this includes a landscape upgrade that will provide better seating, footpaths and planting.
Public consultation on the project runs at dlrcoco.citizenspace.com until Sunday, June 10, 2023.
