Works have commenced on Strand Road at the National Sealife Centre Complex as part of the Bray Seafront Plaza Scheme. The Scheme will provide linkage between the existing pedestrian and cycle facilities to the north and south of the complex, will rationalise car parking and create a space for spill out activity to occur along with the provision of additional cycle parking facilities.
The project will see the enhancement of the public plaza on Strand Road in Bray and is expected to take six months to complete.
The works will include the widening of the existing footpaths and provision of new pedestrian crossings; the reconfiguration of the existing carriageway to provide a raised, narrow carriageway through the plaza; the removal of existing car parking spaces and construction of a lay-by; the installation of new bespoke public lighting and relocation of existing E-Car charging point; the installation of new surface water drainage; and the addition of new landscaping, road markings and traffic signs.
These works are part funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) and as such this is essential works as all cycling and walking projects are considered critical transport infrastructure schemes.
