Mitchell calls for work on Kil­coole to sta­tion foot­path

Bray People - - NEWS -

CLLR Derek Mitchell made ur­gent calls for a foot­path to be put in from Kil­coole to the sta­tion. Cllr Mitchell said that Sea Road is ‘nar­row and heav­ily used’ and a foot­path there should be a pri­or­ity in terms of pedes­trian safety.

He said that while work had be­gun on the project and a de­sign had been done up, it seems to have stalled.

‘I have been press­ing the coun­cil to de­sign and fund one for many years and a de­sign was pro­duced last year,’ he said. ‘ This needed dis­cus­sion with landown­ers as the road is too nar­row. Un­for­tu­nately work stopped and I have asked the coun­cil to restart work so that we can present a plan to the Na­tional Trans­port Au­thor­ity to fund it.’

The coun­cil agreed and Cllr Mitchell is now hop­ing progress can be made.
