On 27th February 2023, Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien TD joined the Mayor of South Dublin County, Cllr Emma Murphy, and South Dublin County Council Chief Executive Daniel McLoughlin at Adamstown to mark the the completion of the Celbridge Link Road in Adamstown Strategic Development Zone and continued funding supports.
The Celbridge Link Road in Adamstown delivers significantly improved accessibility and connectivity on the western side of Adamstown - to not only the existing and future residents of Adamstown but also the residents within the adjoining communities of Celbridge and Leixlip. This north/south connection from the R403 provides a direct link from the R403 to the Adamstown Rail Station, which will provide for shorter commuter times and more sustainable and environmentally friendly commuting patterns within the area. This vital piece of infrastructure will also assist in unlocking the significant housing delivery potential of currently zoned, yet undeveloped lands within the southern extents of Adamstown.
Minister O’Brien said, “It’s important to mark the significant progress which has been made to date by South Dublin County Council with the support of my Department. We’re now looking forward to the future and delivering more large scale projects like this which provides vital infrastructure and unlocks the potential for thousands of new homes. Under Housing for All we are looking to deliver at least 300,000 new homes between now and 2030 and we will use every lever we have to help us do just that.”
Chief Executive of South Dublin Daniel McLoughlin added, “I am delighted with the Government’s continued support for the delivery of critical infrastructure that will continue to unlock the development of a diverse, vibrant and sustainable residential community within the Adamstown SDZ. The delivery of large-scale infrastructural projects such as; Tandy’s Lane Park, the Celbridge Link and forthcoming delivery of Adamstown Plaza and Airlie Park are having – and will continue to have – a transformative impact on the existing and future Adamstown residents. The projects have been designed to a high contemporary standard and quality that will not only enhance the identity of the Adamstown but also the quality of life for the existing and future residents. Of significant importance, the delivery of these key infrastructural projects will continue to unlock the delivery of approximately 2700 homes within one of the most accessible, diverse, and vibrant communities in Ireland.
South Dublin County Council are fully focused on working through the next stages of the Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund and Urban Regeneration Development Fund funding processes and are committed to working in partnership with the Department, residents and existing landowners in the Strategic Development Zone to deliver much needed new homes and public amenities within Adamstown as a matter of priority.”
Speaking at the ceremony Cllr, Emma Murphy, Mayor of South Dublin said, “Today we are marking a number of significant developments in Adamstown. The first notably being the Celbridge Link Road in Adamstown which will deliver significantly improved accessibility and connectivity on the western side of Adamstown - to not only the existing and future residents of Adamstown but also the residents within the adjoining communities Celbridge and Leixlip in our neighbouring county of Kildare. This infrastructure will not only provide connectivity but it will support and attract local enterprise to South Dublin.
