A Part 8 planning scheme was approved for the Blackglen Road / Harold’s Grange Road Improvement Scheme (Sandyford / Ballinteer) in November 2007. Due to the economic downturn, the scheme was put on hold. A revised Part 8 was approved by the Council in June 2016. A detailed design is underway. CPO (Compulsory Purchase Order) was published on 19th April 2018 and confirmed on 13th February 2019. The 3km scheme will be constructed on a phased basis as funding becomes available.
The current project (Blackglen Road Improvement Scheme) does not include improvement works to the Harold's Grange Road.
