A Part 8 planning scheme was approved for the upgrade of Blackglen Road / Harold’s Grange Road (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 and this will be followed by the preparation of a CPO (Compulsory Purchase Order). The 3km scheme will be constructed on a phased basis as funding becomes available.
