Active Travel Scheme : Section 38, Pedestrian and Cycling improvements at Farronshoneen



Waterford City & County Council proposes to undertake the upgrade of pedestrian and cyclist facilities at, and in proximity of Farronshoneen roundabout.

Proposed works include:

• Provision of a toucan crossing on the R710 Eastern arm at the Farranshoneen Roundabout and uncontrolled crossings on all other arms of the roundabout.

• Provision of a zebra crossings on the Williamstown Road Northern and Southern arms of the roundabout, remote from the roundabout entries

• Widening of the existing footpaths on all four quadrants of the roundabout to accommodate a combined footpath / cyclepath.

• Increasing the size of the splitter islands on the Williamstown arms of the roundabout to safely accommodate pedestrians and cyclists crossing these arms of the roundabout.

• Provision of high skid resistance surfacing on both vehicle approaches to the toucan crossing.

• Provision of Bus Cage markings and a Bus Stop sign at the bus stop on the Williamstown Road Southern arm.

• Provision of a zebra crossing on the Williamstown Road Southern arm.

• The provision of a pedestrian link from the footpath at the zebra crossing on the Williamstown Road Southern arm to the internal footpath with the Williamstown Glen Housing Estate.

• Widening of the footpath on the southwestern side of the Williamstown Road Southern arm to accommodate a footpath of adequate width between Hollymount Estate and the Farranshoneen Roundabout.

• The provision of an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing on the Hollymount Estate access road.

As part of Active Travel works in the area, the objective is to improve walking routes, improve connections to existing footpaths and create a more beneficial crossing point closer to the natural desire line, as set out on the attached drawing.

The drawing is available for inspection below and is also on display in our Customer Services Departments in Bailey’s New Street in the City and Davitts Quay, Dungarvan from Tuesday 22nd February to Monday 22nd March, 2022.
