Traffic Calming Measures on Grove Road and The Rise, Malahide, Co. Dublin


An application has been made for traffic calming on Grove Road, Malahide, Co. Dublin, and The Rise, Malahide, Co. Dublin. The purpose of this traffic calming scheme is to facilitate the School Streets Pilot Initiative.

As part of this trial it is proposed to install a one-way system on Grove Road from The Grand Hotel to The Rise and returning to The Mall/Malahide Road (R106) via The Rise. This will be in place 24hrs per day, 7 days a week for the 18 month trial period.

The School Streets Initiative also requires the pedestrianisation of a section of Grove Road, from Church Road to The Rise, for drop off and collection times only. The pedestrianisation of this section of Grove Road will be from 08.30hrs - 09.15hrs and 13.00hrs – 14.45hrs weekdays only, during school term times.

It is proposed that this initiative will commence on Monday 18th November 2019 for an 18 month trial period until the 3rd of May 2021.
