Church Fields Link Road & Cycle Network

To facilitate a housing development in Mulhuddart, Dublin 15, a new link road from an existing roundabout was required to service the development lands. The greenfield section of this link road afforded the space and opportunity to develop an innovative roundabout solution.

In a first for Ireland, we designed a new ‘Dutch-style’ cycle-friendly roundabout. This innovative layout separates cyclists, pedestrians and vehicles on the roundabout, with cyclists given priority and cars yielding to bicycles. This follows the hierarchy of road users’ concept, prioritising the most vulnerable and providing a safe environment for all users.

Solution

As design consultants, working in conjunction with the NTA, we saw a unique opportunity to develop a new layout for the roundabout on this greenfield site. This new ‘Dutch-style’ cycle friendly roundabout design keeps pedestrians and cyclists fully segregated from one another and reduces conflict points. The junction also allows for more efficient travel of cyclists, who no longer must dismount to cross the carriageway with pedestrians.

With an increasing focus on active travel in Government, and an expansion of cycle lanes in recent years, this project is an important step in changing both the mindset of road users and enacting the legislation required to ensure active travel users are prioritised.
Following completion of the construction of the new cycle-friendly roundabout in May 2023, the roundabout has been used as a case study example in the NTA’s new National Cycle Design Manual 2023 (section 4.6.5.1 pg. 146).

As part of the publication of the new Cycle Design Manual, the NTA are also following through legislation change to ensure that cyclists have priority when crossing the carriageway which also directly affects the operation of this new roundabout.

As an infrastructure-led development, roads, high-quality cycle lanes and wide footpaths are being built connecting various parts of the site to local schools, parks, churches and retail, ahead of the construction of new housing on the site. The result will be a coherently planned new residential area where facilities are in place before residential development.
