Maynooth Town North South Corridor

Pursuant to the requirements of the above, notice is hereby given of the proposal to carry out works on the North-South Corridor in Maynooth. The aim of the project is to provide safe and attractive infrastructure to encourage greater use of sustainable travel modes for trips to work, education, and for recreation. The objectives of the scheme are:

  • To improve facilities and quality of service for cyclists, pedestrians and vulnerable road users.
  • Improved and upgraded traffic management arrangements for vulnerable road users that more adequately cater to the needs of all road users.

The objectives of this project are in line with current national, regional and local policies to promote sustainable transport and encourage greater levels of walking and cycling within our cities, towns and villages.

The corridor is defined as the section of Straffan Road from immediately north of the junction with the Celbridge Road, including Main Street, Leinster Street, Mill Street and Moyglare Road.
