Belle­vue Rd ramps is­sue to go to NTA

Bray People - - COUNCIL REPORT -

THE is­sue of ramps on the Belle­vue Road in Grey­stones is to be brought to the Na­tional Trans­port Author­ity (NTA) in an at­tempt to bring a res­o­lu­tion to the mat­ter.

For some time, con­cerns have been raised about the ex­ces­sive num­ber of ramps along the road, and the mat­ter once again re­ceived dis­cus­sion at the March meet­ing of Grey­stones Town Coun­cil, where Cllr Ge­orge Jones called for the num­ber of ramps to be halved as they pose a threat to mo­torists and pedes­tri­ans alike.

‘No progress is be­ing made with re­gards to this what­so­ever,' he claimed. ‘ People are tak­ing eva­sive ac­tion with re­gards the ramps – we've put in twice the amount of ramps needed on the road. The real so­lu­tion is to re­move half the ramps and for the coun­cil to put their hands up and say they made a mis­take. They [the ramps] are a ma­jor dan­ger and en­cum­brance.'

Mayor Stephen Stokes claimed it was ' ab­so­lutely vi­tal' that mo­men­tum on this is­sue be kept up as there re­main ‘ too many ramps' along the Belle­vue Road.

Grey­stones Area En­gi­neer Eoin Hes­lin promised to re­fer the mat­ter to the NTA to see what could be done about the ramps.
