New road (D2) and bridge in West Dublin

Runs parallel to railway line. I think the new high frequency 151 service runs along here to the city centre.

The rest may or may not go as 2 more tracks are added. Railway overbridges cannot be listed regardless of age, unlike canal overbridges for some reason.

North Wall Quay, Dublin

These trucks should soon be banished from the city quays when they start using the Port Tunnel, thank God-they turn an otherwise lovely amenity into a smelly awful noisy place to be. Your coffee vibrates as lorries rumble by.

Stephens Green Dublin - Coppermine - 21101.jpg
Mellor traffic lights at Harcourt Street / Stephens Green Dublin

A Luas tram is seen here crossing the junction. Mellor signal heads look great on stainless steel poles and a true British icon here but it will be a matter of time before more AluStar signals will show up on these poles which I am not looking forward to seeing.

Dundrum Town car park traffic lights - Coppermine - 16593.jpg
Dundrum Town car park traffic lights

I've discovered some traffic lights right inside a multi-storey car park at Dundrum Town Centre! However these are mostly switched off which I think these are only part-time signals only for busy peak periods when people get stuck entering or leaving the car-park! The signal heads are Siemens Helios.

New road and bus stops in West Dublin - Coppermine - 16082.JPG
New road and bus stops in West Dublin

This is the current standard bus stop type being installed across the city. Most all new roads built around here of late have continuous buslanes throughout, something I totally agree with as it is good futureproofing.

Half built bus stop

On new road parallel to Dublin-Cork railway line, just over the fence. The wall is actually a bridge support for a bridge spanning the road and railway.

the ahead filter here is somewhat hindered by the fact that roadworks block it's lane, so left and right traffic (who are held at a red light) are blocking ahead traffic. Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Oct 25, 2007 by traffic_signals

This is Clare Street, with Merrion Street to the left.

New AluStars at Fitzwilliam St/Baggot St, Georgian Quarter Dublin

The former home of Dublin's final set of SGE traffic lights which disappeared recently. A very sad development indeed. The new AluStars were installed due to the demand for a pedestrian crossing facility and a protected right turn phase.

I would have to say the AluStars don't look at all right fitting in the historical character of the location that the old SGEs did. Take a look at one AluStar mounted on a Georgian ornamental streetlight which pretty much says it all!

The first time I've seen a toucan crossing using Motus AluStar signal heads as most Toucans I've seen all have Mellor heads!

This time mounted below the head and what a silly place to put that signal the lamppost almost certainly predates it!

Philips/Serco traffic signal head, Dublin

Another variation of a Philips/Serco signal head which this has more pointy hoods. These signals are either labeled as Philips or Serco which is why I named these as both. These also can be seen today in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand.

Heritage streetlights, The Quays, Dublin - Coppermine - 8936.jpg
Heritage streetlights, The Quays, Dublin

These silver Heritage streetlights, with Urbis Albany lanterns, currently blanket most of Dublin's city streets. Most old streetlights are replaced for these. These lights are on the Quays, the two busy one-way systems with the River Liffey in between, which I think these look elegant lining up one by one facing the river.

Concrete streetlights, Dublin - Coppermine - 6232.jpg
Concrete streetlights, Dublin

A row of old unsleeved concrete streetlights along Wilton Terrace by the Grand Canal. It is a bit of a surprise that these lights haven't been sleeved over the past years though some of them have concrete crumbling away (spalling) the third column is seen to have been patched over with tape. The lanterns are of the top entry style. These will probably go in the next few years being swapped with the silver reproduced 'heritage' streetlights which currently dominate the streets of Dublin.
