‘Mini-round­about’ pro­posal will be looked at for Ket­tle’s Lane

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

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.
