N4 widening project - Coppermine - 16103.JPG
N4 widening project

as well as widening the N4 to D3H at this location it will grade separate this junction (R120) by trenching the N4 (like the westlink at Grosvenor Road) and constructing an overbridge for the R120 which should stay roughly at the same level. Site clearance just started. All these mellors will be no more.

this signal is about to be replaced, but still, for God's sake, a little courtesy for this fellow would be appreceated I'm sure.

This pedestrian light has mellor style amber and green aspects, except the cross hatched pattern of the mellor lense is on the outside and a Spiderwebbed red aspect

Peek Elites, Upper Bridge St, Dublin.

This junction features normal UK Elite heads, with traditional British push buttons, and one Futurit design Serco pedestrian light, with a Swiss (walking, as opposed to standing) amber figure in the background.

GEC mellor Pedestrian signal, N11.

This shot is intresting, as the pedestrian light for the filter lane off the N11 has 2 aspect pedestrian signals.

Mellor Signals, Georgian Quater, Dublin

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.

Pedestrian light, Donnybrook, Dublin

This light seems to be in Swiss style, like their lights, the amber man is in walking mode rather than standing. Quite likely to be a mistake.

Talbot Street Dublin - Coppermine - 5019.jpg
Pedestrian crossing in clearance period, Gardiner Street/Talbot Street Dublin

Most pedestrian lights in Dublin have an amber man as well as red and green men. The amber man warns pedestrians that the crossing time is ending. An average crossing sequence works like this: Red Man > Green Man (5-6 secs) > Amber Man (7-15 secs) > Red Man. The amber man usually is shown at a longer period than the green man. This is sort of like our pedestrian lights blacking out from green to red without showing amber.

Dublin Spire pedestrian crossing, O'Connell Street Dublin - Coppermine - 9031.jpg
Dublin Spire pedestrian crossing, O'Connell Street Dublin

The famous tourist attraction of the Dublin Spire is plonked bang right in the middle of an extra wide pedestrian crossing so you have to walk round it! The pedestrian crossing on both sides are not separate - as you complete crossing the first half, then the amber man lights up, you have yet to cross the second half!

Old Futurit traffic lights, Lincoln Place Dublin - Coppermine - 15570.jpg
Old Futurit traffic lights, Lincoln Place Dublin

Ancient Futurit traffic lights, falling to pieces Irish style. It is of a surprise these haven't been replaced by new Motus AluStars yet though one was replaced by a Mellor type already.

Square shaped traffic lights, Baggot Street, Dublin

These square shaped traffic lights might seem unusual but these can be found over in France too. These are likely to have been made by Sagem as I've seen their logo on the signal heads.

These SGEs were last seen in June 2007. Sadly as of October 2007 these were replaced with yet more Motus AluStars marking the end of an era for SGEs in Europe.

Pedestrian crossing without dropped kerbs on Leeson Street Dublin - Coppermine - 21095.jpg
Pedestrian crossing without dropped kerbs on Leeson Street Dublin

Well, well, look's what we got here.... No dropped kerbs at this pedestrian crossing and this is just like London back in the early 1980s! This same offence is also seen on O'Connell Bridge. The signals at both locations already had been refurbished so some effort should be made to drop the kerbs and fit tactile paving.

Double pedestrian crossing, Ringsend Dublin - Coppermine - 16592.jpg
Double pedestrian crossing, Ringsend Dublin

These crossings, just next to the Eastlink bridge, is slightly unusual as two separate S2 roads run alongside next to each other therefore the crossings are joined together. I don't know if you'd get a green man on both crossings at the same time or you've to press the button again at the next crossing as this is Dublin I think the green man will show up on both crossings so you won't need to wait again...

Red man on pedestrian crossing, Drumcondra Road, Dublin

This pedestrian crossing seems staggered and split in two parts but actually the lights do not work separately that the 'two' crossings both show the same lights as if it is a one single crossing rather than two. Quite bizarre!

Flashing amber arrows on crossing, Castleknock, Fingal Dublin - Coppermine - 15571.jpg
Flashing amber arrows on crossing, Castleknock, Fingal Dublin

The Mellor traffic lights on this standard crossing, on a smaller unclassified road at the entry/exit of a roundabout with the N3 road, have flashing amber ahead arrows on both approaches probably to warn of the roundabout on entry but this may be pointless on exit.

These road studs flash red when the pedestrian crossing is in use, to highlight the stop line, perhaps because drivers are looking at the junction ahead.
AluStar pelican crossing, Dundrum, Dublin - Coppermine - 16597.jpg
AluStar pelican crossing, Dundrum, Dublin

Here it is, a proper AluStar pelican crossing with 2 aspect pedestrian signal heads rather than the botch-up job of the other pelican outside Temple Bar using 3 aspects...

Mixed pedestrian lights, Harts Corner, Glasnevin Dublin - Coppermine - 16586.jpg
Mixed pedestrian lights, Harts Corner, Glasnevin Dublin

These traffic lights control a gyratory system on the N2 road in Glasnevin, Dublin. The pedestrian lights on the right have 2 aspects, instead of the standard 3 as the other two crossings on the left, because to my surprise it is a standalone pelican totally separate from the other lights which these remain on green to traffic all the time until the demand to cross is called.

Standalone pedestrian crossing, Castleknock, Fingal, Dublin

Please note this is not a Pelican that the pedestrian lights have 3 aspects as opposed to 2 that we are used to. This just uses the standard traffic light sequence quite similar to a Puffin though with an amber man and no nearside indicators are used. Wish all our Puffins are like this!

Raised surfaces on crossings, Ballymun, Dublin - Coppermine - 12450.jpg
Raised surfaces on crossings, Ballymun, Dublin

In the northern Dublin suburb of Ballymun, which is undergoing regeneration, the crossings there all have raised surfaces including at junctions as well in an attempt to slow down traffic that ramps do. Should we do this more often on our signalised crossings and junctions, not limited to town and city centres only, here in the UK?

Pedestrian crossing with countdown clocks, Blanchardstown, Fingal, Dublin

This pedestrian crossing, in Blanchardstown, is very responsive more than so than any crossing I've encountered. Once the pushbutton has been pressed the countdown clocks immediately pop up counting down the seconds before the green man appears. The signal heads are of Siemens Helios LED make.

Pedestrian crossing, Kildare Street, Dublin

I remember, a couple of years ago, this crossing had older signal heads and poles and the new stainless steel poles were put up next to them that I assumed these eventually will have AluStar heads. To my delight when I returned to the same spot to find brand new Mellor heads on the new poles!
