Tullow Road Pedestrian & Cycle Scheme

Proposed Development

As part of its 2022 Active Travel Program of works, Carlow County Council’s Roads Department, in conjunction with the National Transportation Authority (NTA), proposes to develop new pedestrian / cycling facilities in the Tullow Road area of Carlow Town, serving the residential areas of John Sweeney Park, Silver Pines, Burrin Manor, The Laurels, Willow Park, Carrigbrook etc. extending from the previously completed sections of cycling infrastructure, to link up with the River Burrin Walk and Cycle Track. The project will also provide a permeability link to the Cherrymount Drive area.
The proposed development will consist of:
  • Site clearance of existing road verge
  • Construction of 1515m of 2m wide Cycle Lanes
  • Construction of 415m of Combined Footpath & Cycle Track
  • Provision of 385m Shared Surface roadway
  • Upgrading of 1350m of Footpaths
  • Construction of New Roundabout
  • Installation of associated signage and road markings as necessary.
New public lighting, road signage, road markings and landscaping in the vicinity of the works will also enhance and improve the existing streetscape at the works location with no negative long term impact on the landscape and visual amenity of the area.

Plans and particulars of the proposed scheme will be available for inspection, for one month, from 5th September 2022 online at Carlow County Council’s Consultation Portal.
