Summary

Roughan & O’Donovan provided a broad range of engineering design services for a new 1km link road, Murphystown Way, which extends from Leopardstown Road at M50 Junction 14 and connects with Ballyogan Road.  

The scheme included:

  • New footpaths
  • New cycle tracks
  • Three signalised junctions
  • Signalised pedestrian crossing

The scheme demonstrates how investment in efficient travel modes can help reduce traffic congestion in cities.

Solution

We brought this road improvement scheme from preliminary planning, including Part VIII planning, through to detailed design.

We undertook the role of health and safety co-ordinator for the design process and carried out the duties of the PSDP at the design and construction stages.

We also provided technical advice to the administrators of the contract, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, during the construction stage.

Challenge

The design of Murphystown Way was influenced by the need to accommodate alignment for the LUAS light rail extension.

Services provided:

  • Planning
  • Civil engineering design
  • Technical consultancy
  • Health and safety co-ordination/PSDP
