Pro­posal for clo­sure of ve­hic­u­lar right of way at Church Rd Swords

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

A pro­posal to per­ma­nently ex­tin­guish a ve­hic­u­lar right of way at the junc­tion of Bridge Street and Church Road in Swords is to go out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion.

The move, ac­cord­ing to the coun­cil will ‘not ma­te­ri­ally af­fect traf­fic move­ments in the ara’ as it is al­ready the sub­ject of a tem­po­rary clo­sure.

The ex­tin­guish­ing of this right of way is part of the plan­ning per­mis­sion for the huge nurs­ing home cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion at Bridge Street.

Coun­cil of­fi­cials said they hoped to put the pro­posal out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion and get lo­cals feed­back on the project ‘very soon’.

A num­ber of lo­cal coun­cil­lors asked to see the map of the pro­posal and Cllr Joe Newman asked if the new junc­tion would be two-way.

These and other ques­tions will be ad­dressed dur­ing the pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod.

That process should be­gin soon af­ter the coun­cil­lors on the Bal­brig­gan/swords Area Com­mit­tee agreed to let the planned clo­sure go out on pub­lic dis­play.

Once the pub­lic has had their say on the is­sue, a re­port will be brought back to the coun­cil­lors for a fi­nal de­ci­sion on the pro­posal. The pro­posal will be on dis­play at coun­cil of­fices in Swords soon.
