Wellington Lane Temporary Measures and Trial
South Dublin County Council, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority (NTA), are proposing to trial pedestrian and cycle facilities at two roundabouts along Wellington, the Wellington Lane / Orwell Road Roundabout and the Wellington Road / Templeville Road Roundabout.
These temporary improvement measures will consist of improved dedicated crossings as well as dedicated space for cyclists within the road carriageway that will be physically separated from vehicles via bollards.
A six month trial for these measures is proposed.
Before, During and After the six month trial, we will be carrying out a number of surveys to understand what the current issues are, how the temporary measures are working and what improvements could be made to these measures to increase the overall safety for users.
The scheme trial will involve minimal civil works and will be installed to allow for localised changes or removal if required. These measures being trialled will form a subsequent phase to the current COVID-19 cycle safety measures being implemented along Wellington Lane, Wellington Road and Whitehall Road.
The outcome and feedback from the trial will inform the Preferred Design Layout at these junctions for a permanent scheme proposed along Wellington Lane, Wellington Road and Whitehall Road.
