Browne Roundabout

Pedestrian and Cycling (Toucan) Crossings at Browne Roundabout

The Browne Roundabout is a five-arm roundabout located at the junction of the N6, N59, R338 Seamus Quirke Road and the University Hospital Galway access road. The current courtesy crossing facility is inadequate for the volume of pedestrians/vehicles at this junction. Galway City Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland are proposing to construct a number of toucan crossings adjacent to this roundabout. Toucan crossings allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross at the same time without requiring cyclists to dismount and walk across.

The below link contains drawings showing the proposed crossing facilities.
