‘Mini-roundabout’ proposal will be looked at for Kettle’s Lane
A survey of the junction of Kettle’s Lane and Feltrim Road where there are serious safety concerns, is to be studied for its suitability for a mini-roundabout.
The suggestion was put forward by Cllr Eoghan O’brien (FF) at a meeting of the Malahide/ Howth Area Committee and the council agreed to look at the proposal.
A local authority report on the issue stated: ‘A topographical survey of the area will be carried out to determine if a mini or compact roundabout would fit within the current road boundaries.
‘Cyclist and pedestrian movement through the roundabout will also be taken into consideration.
‘Roundabouts work most efficiently when vehicular flows are reasonably balanced between the arms.
‘A traffic survey needs to be carried out at peak times to assess if there is a dominant flow of traffic on the Feltrim Road as this would create difficulty for traffic exiting Kettles Lane.
The results of the two surveys will be reported back to the Area Committee.
