Challenge / Goal

As part of the Active School Travel initiative launched in August 2020, the Dún Laoghaire City Council implemented a two-way cycle facility on the west side of Carysfort Avenue from its junction with Stillorgan Park Road to Convent Road.

With the new implementation of the two-way cycle facility on Carysfort Avenue, the latter was coinciding with three bus stops. Then, bus stops have been moved out to the edge of the cycle track generating a conflict between cyclists and pedestrians. The project had to guarantee the coexistence between cyclists and pedestrians who got on and off the buses.

Solution

Therefore, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council covered a 51 metres area by installing three Vectorial® system platforms with an integrated cycle lane. These platforms allow both cyclists and bus users to share the same space safely. At the same time, buses can now approach the stop without the need for manoeuvres, optimising their travel times and ensuring universal accessibility for all bus users.
