Ashtown Roundabout; After years of requests for safety improvements, we are informed Fingal Co. Council will at least remove low lying branches from the trees, “to increase visibility” . We continue to lobby for the required change back to a safe signalised crossing. National Roads Authority in 2009 wrote to DCC that a “proposed development in Pelletstown was premature pending improvement of the Roundabout” – regretfully ignored to date. We will again be requesting a meeting with Minister for Transport.
They also undertook to install a pedestrian crossing at entrance to Racecourse Estate/Navan Road. In the interim, this should have the benefit, on our side, of slightly slowing down traffic approaching the roundabout;
Dog Fouling; After 2 years asking – New Dog Foul notices up in past week (was also dependent on ‘funding’): But REMEMBER your doggies cannot read, so please honour the notices, and ensure that no children pick up disease; nor vulnerable people step into it. All depends on your courtesy and respect for others.
