t’s a little bit of a riddle-me-this, but we think the N11 is about to become a little more exclusive.
Which makes sense, given that the other three main options meant barging through neighbouring homes.
The full press release is below, wherein they don’t quite say which corridor Wicklow County Council has gone with, but, after all the kicking and screaming over the yellow, blue, green, pink, orange and cyan corridors, it would appear the Arup gang has gone with the red corridor.
Better known as The Only Sensible Corridor.
You can check out the details released so far right about here. Broadly, rather than widening the N11 all existing direct access from side roads and houses are to be removed so that only main junctions will be connected to the N11. So, no direct access from Kilquade, Kilpedder South, Will Grove or Delgany, or Glen Of The Downs woods. Ditto for the section heading on to Bray, with again all the houses and little side roads between Glen of The Downs and Kilmacanogue closed off.
Instead, everything will be facilitated by new local roads to link over to the main junctions.
There will also be enhanced bus services along the N11 and Park & Ride facilities, along with more options for active travel measures (that’s walking and cycling, fact fans) to link over to the N11 bus services.
The scheme proposals presented, says the site, ‘are indicative in nature and are still subject to change. As the project progresses, more detailed assessments, on-going studies and the incorporation of information received from the public may result in changes to these proposals.
‘The exact details of the scheme design will be developed during the next phase of the Planning and Design process.’
Here’s that press release…
Wicklow County Council is progressing the development of the N11/M11 Junction 4 to Junction 14 Improvement Scheme in partnership with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the Department of Transport.
An online public display event is being held to inform the public and stakeholders of the Preferred Option identified for the scheme, the work undertaken to date and the programme for advancement of the project. This non-statutory consultation event also provides an opportunity for feedback and observations to be submitted regarding the process and conclusions reached to date, which may inform the further development of the scheme in the next phases.
In consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wicklow County Council will hold a 3-week online public display event which will be available on the project website www.n11m11.ie. This event will go live from 5pm on Monday 30 August 2021 until Monday 20 September 2021 and the online platform will provide access to a consultation room containing a display of information boards and maps describing the preferred option.
The public display platform will also include an online booking facility where the public and other stakeholders can schedule an online or telephone meeting with a member of the project team during the consultation period up until Monday 20 September 2021.
Submissions will be accepted via the online feedback form available on the project website www.n11m11.ie, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by post addressed to N11/M11 Junction 4 to Junction 14 Improvement Scheme, Wicklow County Council, County Buildings, Whitegates, Wicklow Town, A67 FW96. Submissions must be received during the consultation period up until Monday 20 September 2021.
Wicklow County Council values the opinion of the community on this project and welcomes feedback and submissions from the public and interested parties. The knowledge gained from the engagement will be considered by the project team as part of the next stages of the development of the scheme.
