Hanlon’s Corner Pedestrian & Cycling Improvements Interim Scheme

Closed 1 Feb 2023

Opened 15 Dec 2022


Dublin City Council with the support of the National Transport Authority proposes to implement interim measures to improve the walking and cycling facilities at Hanlon’s Corner junction.

These are advance improvement works ahead of more extensive alterations to this junction which are expected in the coming years as part of the Blanchardstown to City Centre CBC Bus Connects project and the North Circular Road Walking & Cycling permanent scheme

The interim scheme will improve pedestrian facilities and provide a safer environment for cycling. The improvements include;

  • Removal of the left turn slip lane from the North Circular Road (NCR) onto the Old Cabra Road. Left turning movements from NCR into Old Cabra Road will be retained
  • Installation of a protected cycle lanes on both sides of the road along the NCR western arm and along parts of the NCR eastern arm
  • Widening and protection of the cycle lane on Prussia Street approaching Hanlon’s Corner and introduction of a short section of southbound protected cycle lane on Prussia Street approaching Park shopping centre
  • Re-surfacing of the entire junction

Note: Layout drawing was updated to include and highlight that the existing bus stop on Prussia Street (Bus Stop ID 1911) is retained as part of the project (20/12/2022).
