The Clonsilla Train Station Parking and Traffic Management Scheme was carried out to:
- Regularising existing illegal parking along the R121 regional road next to Clonsilla Train Station
- Provide new sustainable transport measures such as improved pedestrian and cyclist measures, bus stops and cycle stands in the vicinity of the train station
- Improve traffic flows and capacities by providing a signalised junction at the level crossing next to O'Callaghans Bridge
- Upgrade sections of the canal to promote leisure and transport measures
- improve safety
The scheme comprised of the provision of new echelon and parallel parking spaces along Hansfield Road to accommodate the rogue commuter parking which was occuring. CSEA, by way of agreement, secured the requisite land requirements to construct the scheme. The Royal Canal bank was upgraded with improved pedestrian and cyclist facilities through negotiation with Waterways Ireland.
The junction at Clonsilla Train Station was signalised and coordinated with the existing at-grade rail crossing on O'Callaghan's Bridge. These measures improved pedestrian safety along existing pedestrian desire lines and improve junction efficiency for all road users. Improved cyclist measures were constructed in the vicinity of the station to promote sustainable modes of transport with the addition of secure bicycle storage.
Along Hansfield Road, in excess of 100 Pay and Display parking spaces were constructed to service the train station. A new set down area and disable parking was constructed next to the station.
