The proposed works along Haigh Terrace and the intersection with George’s Street, Dun Laoghaire sought to improve the streetscape by using high quality hard and soft landscaping and street furniture to match the works completed by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council along Marine Road, Queen’s Road and the Metals.
Currently the width of the street and the footpath is very narrow. The proposal is to remove the footpath and introduce one surface material for the full width of the street thereby promoting pedestrian priority and creating a more comfortable and attractive walking route. Parking spaces will be located within a planted zoned which will reduce the visual impact of cars on the street.
Haigh Terrace is a key link between Dún Laoghaire’s Main Street and the Waterfront areas. The location of DLR LexIcon together with the National Maritime Museum greatly increases the importance of this street.
In accordance with the aims of the Dún Laoghaire Urban Structure Framework Plan, Haigh Terrace should provide an attractive environment to encourage pedestrians to migrate from the waterfront, East Pier, Metals and DLR LexIcon up to George’s Street.
This proposal seeks to improve the streetscape of by using high quality hard and soft landscaping and street furniture to match the works completed by DLR along Marine Road, Queens Road and the Metals.
