Motion 1 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee request the Manager to report on what measures could be taken to improve safety at this junction – possibly footpath build out at Leary’s Terrace and Sandymount Road (just at Star of the Sea Church and school). A constituent reports that it’s a strange junction and not clearly marked. Cars regularly turn without indicating (as it’s not a very obvious turn) and it’s not clear where to stop when approaching the junction from Leahy’s Terrace.


Motion 2 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests the Manager to examine and report back on introducing a parking permit scheme which allows residents purchase a permit to either a) park their car OR b) install a four bike black recycled plastic http://www.bikeshel.com/?   Average cars remain parked up to 95% of the time, while a bike shelter would be stationery 100% of the time - a negligible difference. The permit revenue for DCC would remain the same, while removing a car from the roads, providing people with secure bike storage for their families beside their homes, and improving health by promoting active lifestyles, all in line with DCC’s City Development Plan.  The BikeBunker scheme does not work for families where a single household without rear, side or front space for bike storage needs secure on-street storage for multiple bikes if switching from driving to cycling is to be an option.


Motion 3 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests the Manager to provide a response to this call for audible crossings within the core Sandymount area as requested in this text submitted with this motion.  I am a blind lady with a guide dog moving to live in Sandymount shortly. What concerns me greatly is the lack of audible crossings on Claremont Road, Seafort Avenue, Newgrove Avenue and Marine Drive. While I appreciate that the presence of traffic lights, audible or otherwise, can be a great frustration to motorists, for a pedestrian such as myself, blind, with a guide dog, having to negotiate an environment which is potentially dangerous and life-threatening, I am hoping that DCC Traffic Department can now assist in providing a safe means of crossing the road in these areas identified above. 


Motion 4 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That DCC activate the agreed and established standard for reinstatement of roads following underground works.   This is especially relevant to the work carried out by Irish Water contractors and also applies to ESB, Bord Gais etc.  These standards also need to be applied to temporary fixes immediately following work along with final reinstatement.  The quality of work has deteriorated now that DCC is no longer carrying out the work.  Also is there an option for the council to impose a fine on these organisations?

Irish Water works on the Terenure Road between Mount Tallant Avenue junction and Kenilworth junction (five points): the work on Leinster Road. There have been ongoing works here, but the standard of the temporary fix applied to the footpath is very  ...  view the full agenda text for item 10.
