Sunny times for businesses as pedestrian numbers up 92% after Monkstown facelift
Monkstown Village is DMURS compliant, and mobility and age friendly with tactile paving, signalised crossing points, seating, high quality lighting, increased pedestrian footways, disabled parking spaces and improved footpath gradients.
Atkins has announced that it has successfully completed the Monkstown Village Improvement Scheme for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (DLRCC).
Pedestrian counts at certain key crossing points before and after the works show that pedestrian activity has increased by 385 per cent. Overall, pedestrian volumes are up 92 per cent, highlighting that people are choosing to walk to and through Monkstown rather than drive, which is sustainable and a boon for local businesses.
