Councillor seeks safety measures for Richmond Park
IN notices of motion last Tuesday evening at Bray Municipal District, Cllr Joe Behan sought a number of measures for Richmond Park.
He asked that the council investigate the possibility of constructing additional ramps-speed tables at the intersection of two roads in thee vicinity of no 161.
‘ The provision of traffic calming measures would require an assessment of need in accordance with the council’s traffic calming policy, public consultation and the allocation of funding to implement agreed measures,’ said District Administrator David Forde.
‘However, it is noted that there may be an issue with lack of clarity on junction priority giving rise to reported near misses.
‘As an interim measure it is proposed to erect a stop sign and road marking on approach aside 161 Richmond park.
‘It is also noted that the junction radii are about 9m and approach roadway widths exceed 6m. Reduction of these may be a more appropriate measure than vertical traffic calming.’
Cllr Behan asked for children at play signs throughout the estate.
Mr Forde said that one already exists at the entrance, and a second sign can be provided if the residents’ association wishes to propose a location.
Engineer Liam Bourke agreed to have a meeting with the residents’ association.
