The Council is piloting a new style of kerbed bike lanes on Goatstown Road. As well as increasing cycle safety, there will also be some improvements for pedestrians. A lot of the junctions will be made smaller to reduce crossing time, and to slow down turning traffic. These junctions include Goatstown Avenue and The Grove (the access to the schools), but not Larchfield Road by the looks of the plans. Tightening the junction at the turn for the schools in particular will make an improvement in pedestrian safety there.
Commencing for 2 nights on the 7th July, the main works will start on 20th July lasting for 17 nights. Work will be undertaken overnight, Monday to Thursdays.
Also, this is a good Tweet from the DLR Cycling Group.
