Traffic Calming Scheme - Commencement along R680 Old Kilmeaden Road, Co. Waterford


Waterford City & County Council proposes to undertake road improvement works along R680 located north of Kilmeaden Village and links directly on to the car park at the Suir Valley Railway Link which is an access point to the Waterford Greenway and connects to Waterford City to the East. The works will include development of new kerbing, narrowing of the road width to 6.5 metres, provision of footpaths, uncontrolled crossing points, modification of existing junctions with improved road markings and the provision of new public lighting.

The purpose of the scheme is to provide safe access and connectivity by way of footpaths and uncontrolled crossing points to the Greenway car park and to make the approaches along R680 safe and accessible to the car park for pedestrians, cyclists by narrowing down the roadway and slowing speed.

The main goal is to prioritise pedestrian and cycle movements over vehicles and to promote active travel by providing a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists to travel along the R680 between local neighbourhood area, Kilmeaden Village to the South and the Suir Valley Greenway access point.

The drawing is available for inspection in our Customer Services Departments in Davitts Quay, Dungarvan and Bailey’s New Street, Waterford and on our website below during the period 26th April to 23rd May, 2022.

The Council will consider any submissions or observations made in writing regarding the proposal. Submissions should be lodged with Aideen Jacob, Administrative Officer, Roads Department, Waterford City & County Council, Menapia Building, The Mall, Waterford or by email to ajacob@waterfordcouncil.ie to be received by 6th June, 2022.
