Lord Mayors Pub – Traffic Congestion
Question: Councillor J. Newman:
“To ask the Chief Executive to report on what plans if any are being considered to alleviate the traffic congestion
at the Lord Mayors Pub junction as a number of motorist become quite irate with the delays at this junction?”
The traffic lights are monitored by Traffic Solutions and the Operations Department, with the lights optimised to
allow traffic to flow at the maximum capacity of the junction.
A yellow box was placed to allow turning movements to and from Church Road. The traffic lights have a peak hour
plan that links the Lord Mayors junction with the Malahide Road Junction at the Garda Station and an off peak
plan that uses two traffic loops, both plans are in place to optimise the traffic flows through the junctions.
The junction layouts in this area operate within the constraints of the existing building layout and topography of
the area, which decreases the possibilities for modifications to the road layout or increases in lane widths.
The area will continue to be monitored.
Note: I am totally dissatsified with recieving the same answer for two different issues. see Brackenstown road traffic issue below.
