Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and the National Transport Authority (NTA) appointed J. B. Barry and Partners Limited as their consultant and lead designer on the Braemor Road Enhancement Scheme.
The Braemor Road Enhancement Scheme is a 1.6km urban renewal scheme to improve bus, pedestrian and cyclist facilities and reduce traffic speeds. The scheme includes, inter-alia, for the upgrading of cycle-ways, bus stops, footpaths, carriageway, landscaping, signage and road markings. Construction of the scheme was completed in May 2014.
The scheme significantly improves facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, including mobility impaired and disabled and provide additional safety measures for all road users.
As a regular commuter along this stretch, the transformation has been a delight. After cycling on the main carriageway in wet windy conditions fearing for my safety from close passing traffic, I can now cycle safely with plenty of space and a safe distance from traffic.
