Cllr Oisín O'Connor

Green Party Councillor for Glencullen-Sandyford, including Ballinteer, Stepaside, Kilternan, Leopardstown, Ballyogan & Glenamuck

Today, the Project Team for the Blackglen Road / Lamb’s Cross project have sent a detailed November update on the plans to finish the project. I posted the October update here previously. I have kept this on the agenda in recent council meetings and continue to put pressure on the project to be finished as soon as possible with minimum disruption.

If you have any issues to report, please let me know.

The summary of the update provided with us today Monday 13th November:

  • Works on the road at Lamb’s Cross expected to be finished this week.
  • Final layer of road surface to be applied around Lamb’s Cross over coming week along with cycle track surfacing, and footpath surfaces and kerbs.
  • Sewerage connections to be made all along Blackglen Road to take place in next few weeks
  • Road, cycle path and footpath final surfacing to be done on Blackglen Road over coming weeks.

The full update is below or available on PDF here. Please do reach out to me by email or phone if you have any questions or issues you’d like to raise.

The contractor (Murphys International Ltd) is progressing with works despite the disruptive effect of the weather. Storm Debi has had limited effect on Dublin today but works at Simons Ridge junction with Blackglen Road were halted in the interest of safety.

Nonetheless, progress is being made, and traffic management is being closely monitored by DLR Traffic Section and Road Control.

  • Road surfacing will continue on Sandyford Road tomorrow 14th November (10am to midnight). 2-way traffic will be re-established for the Wednesday morning peak. Footpath and kerbing works on Enniskerry Road St Mary’s School, and the Community Centre will continue to the end of this week. The Simons Ridge junction works will now progress on Wednesday 15th November.
  • The following week, 20 – 24 November, should see kerbs and footpaths being laid at Enniskerry Road at the shops, along with surfacing works at junction of Slate Cabin Lane/Enniskerry Road.
  • Thereafter from 27 November – 08 December the contractor plans to complete footpath works at Lambs Cross junction at the northwest and southwest corners, along with the final wearing course across the junction.
  • In the meantime, and over the next few weeks, landowner foul sewer connections are being switched to the new main line from Lamb Doyles eastward on Blackglen Road.
  • Road and cycletrack surfacing will continue on Blackglen road through to the end of November and into December.
  • During this time, and with the approaching busy Christmas season, we will be liaising with local stakeholders and working to reduce and minimise the disruption to residents and businesses.

A further update will follow in a few weeks.
