South Dublin County Council

Bóthar na Gráinsí go Mullain na Gráinsí

South Dublin County Council, in association with the National Transport Authority (NTA), is proposing short walking and cycling routes to serve local neighbourhoods across the County.

The Grange Road to Grange Downs route is one of a series of these routes. These community links will create more sustainable local neighbourhoods with direct pedestrian and cycle links to popular local destinations. The aim is to encourage people to leave the car at home for local trips by bringing more households within walking and cycling distance to local amenities in accordance with the policies of the National Transport Authority (NTA) and the County Development Plan 2010 - 2016.

In the Grange Road project, it is proposed to construct a pedestrian and cycle link from Grange Road to Barton Road Extension / Grange Manor Road area, a route which is used as an existing pedestrian shortcut. The route will greatly reduce the walking and cycling distance to Nutgrove Shopping Centre, bus stops and local amenities for local households.
