Finglas Village Improvement Scheme

Closes 15 Mar 2024

Opened 12 Feb 2024

Overview

The Finglas Village Improvement Scheme is part of the Dublin City Council (DCC) core active travel network. It is cofunded by the National Transport Authority(NTA) and Dublin City Council (DCC). The Finglas Village Improvement Scheme is a transformational scheme for Finglas Village to address inadequate pedestrian and cycling facilities within Finglas Village while significantly improving the public realm. The scheme will also see improved public transport facilities being provided.  The improved public realm proposals will provide accessible quality links to the future Luas stop from the Village.  It will facilitate bus and intermodal transfer in the Village

 

                                                            

Scheme Overview

The proposed scheme covers an area between the junction of Seamus Ennis Road/North Road (to the west) and the junction of Seamus Ennis Road / Clune Road / Glasanaon Road (to the east). It also includes Jamestown Road between the junction with Main Street (to the south) and the junction with Seamus Ennis Road (to the north).

The Finglas Village Improvement Scheme will: 

  • Provide high quality, safe and accessible protected cycling and walking facilities to cater for all ages
  • Provide improvement to public transport facilities, including new bus shelters
  • Improve the pedestrian experience through public realm initiatives (i.e., planting/trees, seating, widened pavements, reduced clutter)

 

Scheme Benefits

  • Maximise priority for pedestrians and cyclists while significantly improving safety and accessibility for all road users within Finglas
  • Make the use of public transport more attractive to the public
  • Improve access to and from the proposed new Luas Finglas stop, west of the Village while also catering for anticipated increase in local population as a result of the rezoning of lands at the Jamestown SDRA (north of Finglas Village)
  • Facilitate a more active lifestyle for all ages bringing multiple benefits for physical and mental wellbeing
  • Contribute to a reduction in transport emissions in line with the objectives of the Climate Action Plan by encouraging a modal shift to Active Travel use
