Coun­cil­lor seeks safety mea­sures for Rich­mond Park

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
