Motions

Motion 1 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests a response to the issues below:

“I request that something be done about the very dangerous road arrangements at the N11/Donnybrook Main Road/ Donnybrook Church/Beaver Row/Anglesea Road/Ailesbury Road.

There are frequent accidents and daily anger/frustration and dangerous near misses in this area. Only in the last couple of weeks, on Sunday 23rd January, a 70-year-old male cyclist sustained serious head injuries on the N11 turning right into this junction approach.


The pedestrian lights only work sequentially in one direction and they are only on three sides of the main N11/Donnybrook/Beaver Row junction. There are elderly people going to the church, and children attempting to get to school, some even by bike, who take their lives into their hands daily. This is particularly the case since the increased construction traffic in the area.
This junction could be better served by either a roundabout, or even by bringing Anglesea Road and Ailesbury Road up towards the main Donnybrook/N11 junction, getting rid of the triangle and re-locating the monument to the Alderman onto the roundabout or onto a new paved/grassy piece where the Anglesea/Ailesbury Roads have been brought up as described.  This would reduce the accidents at a yellow box serving three roads (and no one seems to heed who has right of way here it’s so complex).

At a bare minimum, altering the pedestrian lights, including having pedestrian lights on all four sides of the road, putting proper barrier divided cycle lanes in place or an overpass for pedestrians and bikes would help. The Protected Junctions described on your website would be essential in this location.

I know you have received so many complaints and comments about this junction over the years, please can the planning/road engineering department do something about this junction and soon.”

 

Motion 2 from Councillor Tara Deacy

April 2nd is World Autism day.  D12 Autism Group will be doing a family fun day to celebrate our children and I ask that this committee agrees to support them and light up DCC spaces for the day in rainbow colours.  We have really good links with other community spaces like the Bru, Crumlin and Sundrive Garda station etc.  Could we link in with them and engage them also in this process? It would be a really positive step for our families in terms of inclusion acknowledgement and support. It would also create an opportunity for awareness raising and discussion.

 

Motion 3 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Area Committee rejects the current National Transport Authority proposal to locate the Metrolink Terminus at Charlemont and urges the NTA to undertake the essential studies required to identify the best location for a City Centre terminus.

 

Motion 4 from Councillor Mannix Flynn

That this meeting of DCC call on CAB (Criminal Assets Bureau) and the Minister for Justice to give to DCC all houses that are seized by CAB to Dublin City Council Housing Department.  Further, that any other properties or buildings that could  ...  view the full agenda text for item 8.
