Motion 1 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee asks that the broken paths/kerbs as detailed with this question be repaired as soon as possible.

Re replacing broken paths / kerbs on Argyle Road off Herbert Park that were caused by the construction vehicles

For the last 3 years residents have been submitting pictures to DCC regarding broken footpaths and kerbs on Brendan Road that are a health and safety issue for residents in the area as the uneven surfaces are not visible at night or in the rain.

I attach some sample images that have been submitted on numerous occasions to DCC.


Motion 2 from Councillor Claire Byrne

That this Area Committee calls on the Area Manager to install a yellow box outside Pembroke Square Apartments, Barrow Street.  The new traffic lights here have been causing problems for residents entering and exiting their building due to traffic blocking the entrance.  The car parking spaces here are also causing an issue given their proximity to the exit bend.  Can the Manager please examine this as a matter of urgency?


Motion 3 from Councillor Claire Byrne

That this Area Committee calls on the Area Manager to resurface all of Long Lane as part of the 2022 programme of works.


Motion 4 from Councillor Claire Byrne

That this Area Committee calls on the Area Manager to increase public lighting in Baggot Court. There are ongoing issues of robberies and anti-social behaviour here and better lighting could help act as a deterrent. 


Motion 5 from Councillor Tara Deacy

That this committee agrees that DCC review the number and frequency of Disability Bays on Old County Road, Sundrive Road and other commercial areas in the Kimmage / Crumlin area. 


Motion 6 from Councillor Tara Deacy

Motion 2 I raised this motion in the last quarter of last year, can we revisit this issue? 


That this committee support the idea for the Crumlin/Kimmage area to be considered for a Neighbourhood Transport Scheme. The area is used highly for rat-running and speeding and was not considered in the first round of changes (see https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/18shdEcEOxB2sRN8gzKwbs1W69U6OUM1rE3FQtABqOyU/edit#slide=id.p2 


The above presentation link was made to Councillors at the September 9th 2019 South East Area Committee meeting. The opportunity was afforded to Councillors to add any areas to the list for consideration they felt should be included that wasn’t already included. As a result additional areas were put forward including areas in Kimmage and Crumlin. The Neighbourhood Engineer assessed and ranked all areas accordingly.

However due to the current pandemic all works on the Neighbourhood Transport Schemes have ceased with the engineers’ focus solely on Covid Interim Mobility Interventions. 

There is currently a Covid Interim Mobility trial underway at Pigeon House Road. Once this trial is completed the option to carry out a trial in the Crumlin and Kimmage can be discussed with local Councillors at the relevant area committee meetings.


Motion 7 from Councillor Pat Dunne

Following on from the recent installation of two Welcome to Kimmage signs this area committee  ...  view the full agenda text for item 4.
