Plans released for major landscape improvement of Tallaght bypass


One of this areas busiest roads, the Tallaght bypass, is set to undergo transformation after SDCC released plans for the future of that particular stretch of the N81.

Among the changes in store are an upgrading and re-alignment of major junctions along the route and the widening of medians on some of the busiest parts of the dual carriageway.

These massive improvements to the landscape will take in the part of the road all the way from its junction with the N82 in Citywest down to the end of the dual carriageway on Templeogue Road.

There will also be some changes to the cycle track and pedestrian footpath on parts of the route, and upgrades to the entrances to Sean Walsh park and Tymon Park.

Parks will be created between Fortunestown Road and Maplewood and from the south of Whitestown Stream from the Old Bawn Road to Avonbeg Road.

Included within all the plans is landscaping on roundabouts and boundaries, new public lighting, art works, street furniture and signage along the route.


South Dublin County Council have submitted a Part 8 application which presents the plans for public consultation.

The plans are available for public viewing until Friday, January 6 in County Hall in Tallaght, Ballyroan Library in Rathfarnham, Castletymon Library in Tymon North and County Library, Tallaght.
