Municipal District: 18 February 2022
Motion: That the council urgently provides a safe means for pedestrians to cross before the roundabout on the R449 given the closure of the pathway on the R405 in Celbridge as part of works on the new housing development, as well as the new bus stop requiring children to cross the road at Applegreen.
Report: Temporary pedestrian management measures have been installed by Ardstone under licence to facilitate works to the front of the new development at Crodaun. These are temporary and will be removed on the completion of the works. There is currently an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing between the roundabout and the first entrance to the Applegreen site providing a means for pedestrians to cross the R449.
Discussion and outcome: Councillor Liston noted the report and stated the council should learn from this for future developments.
The District Manager outlined that the Senior Engineer with the Active Travel Team would be the first point of contact. He would examine this with the Municipal District Engineer and advise on the best procedure they should follow.
Resolved on the proposal of Councillor Liston, seconded by Councillor Neville and agreed by the members that the report be noted and the Senior Engineer, Active Travel Team would examine this with the Municipal District Engineer and advise on the best procedure they should follow.
