Motions

Motion 1 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That the Traffic Department urgently erect bollards at the entrance to Kimmage Grove.  In the meantime, that the clampers be requested to visit this site on a very regular basis nightly because of illegal parking that is hindering access to this estate.

 

Motion 2 from Councillor Mary Freehill

The current state of Leinster Road is dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians and is very unsightly.  That the Manager sets out what powers the council can use to ensure that Irish Water reinstate Leinster Road, Rathmines following renewal of water pipes.  Furthermore that the Cleansing Department add Leinster Road to their list now that work has been completed.

 

Motion 3 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

Noting the appalling state of the footpath in the vicinity of Vergemount, Clonskeagh Road and Vergemount Park this committee requests the Manager to immediately have these examined with a view to a serious upgrade of same and an immediate repair of the particularly poor work at the junction of Vergemount Park and Clonskeagh Road.

 

Motion 4 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That this committee contact the NTA regarding the shortage of buses on the Harold’s Cross route into town in morning rush hour.  Residents of the area are unable to get a bus into town to work as the buses are full when they arrive in Harold’s Cross.   Furthermore, we would like to discuss why more buses don’t use the Clanbrassil Street route into town and to explain why Rathmines Rathgar and Terenure areas are still deprived of a bus service to St. Stephen’s Green.

 

Motion 5 from Councillors Tara Deacy and Deirdre Conroy

That this committee support an urgent investigation regarding the speed and behaviour of traffic on the stretch of the lower Crumlin Road between Sundrive Road and the Grand Canal (Dolphin's Barn Bridge / Parnell Road) and that action be taken to address the ongoing serious concerns of residents and children/young people using the various facilities in this area.

 

There have been a number of serious collisions on this stretch in recent times and a review carried out by DCC in 2018 did not allow for any measures to be put in place.

 

This stretch of road is chiefly residential in nature, it is also home to three different schools (Loreto Senior Primary School / Scoil Mhuire Óg and Loreto Junior Primary School) a busy sports ground - Dolphin Park which is used by two growing GAA clubs and almost a dozen local schools, a youth club - Clay Youth Project, Dolphins Barn Fire Station and the densely populated residential complex of Seagull House.

Residents have identified a number of measures that may help, can some or all of these be considered this time round:

 

- proper analysis of traffic and pedestrian activity at this location

- reduction in speed limit to 30kmph

- traffic calming measures including visual obstacles

- road narrowing 

- yellow box outside Dolphin Park 

- protected cycle lanes

- speed reader 

- lollipop people on  ...  view the full agenda text for item 8.
