We are asked to remind parents of ongoing parking issues at the keyhole area in Kinvara Park, at school pick up times. Small children are in danger daily from badly parked/badly turning cars. PLEASE do not park in or block driveways, clearways, double yellow lines, or anywhere that might cause obstruction, at
-Keyhole Kinvara Park;
– Villa Park
– on Navan Road, especially on marked clearway outside Church and Doctors’ Surgery
– in spaces for disabled drivers
The car park behind the church is designated for parent parking.
Speeding Navan Road & cutting lights; At the recent Policing Forum we drew attention to our Community Sgt. and Gardaí of speeding & cutting lights on our section of Navan Road, suggesting various methods of control. It is not Gardaí who decide where safety notices/signs/lights etc. are placed – we are required to write to Traffic Advisory Body in DCC which we will be doing.
Ashtown Grove; we also requested of DCC officials present – that they mark out the parking areas on both sides of the shops to allow for proper organised parking and to consider time restrictions on part of the parking area so that our residents can park and use our local shops. At present there is a lot of all day commuter parking, making it very difficult for local shoppers. We will inform you of both outcomes.
Suspicious cars; Gardaí at the Forum ask that anyone who feels there may be a suspicious car within their housing area, there is no point calling Cabra station, unless you have noted the registration number (only if it is safe to do so, and not in view of a driver).

BLOOM/PHOENIX PARK. Thurs 2nd to Mon 6th June. 9.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. each day. One of the highlights of summer, but not without its traffic issues for the Navan Road area. We try to have a meeting with organisers before the event, and have already urged in writing that they ensure traffic Gardaí on duty have some local knowledge to better direct lost souls. Last year such drivers caused delays in Baggot Road/Villa Park areas searching for directions.ASHTOWN GATE will be closed to traffic, except emergency and Park residents; CABRA GATE – No right turn inside; Parking on Chesterfield Ave. restricted; No Parking on Old Lamp Road (Triangle Rd). www.bloominthepark.com
ROUNDABOUT TREES; We were assured work to commence, (“with traffic plan in place”) on Saturday 28th May. Lower branches will be thinned out to improve visibility through the roundabout.
Work to be done again this Saturday night 28th May overnight, from 10 or 11 pm until 8 am Sunday morning.
There will be NO road closure but a stop-go traffic control.
Some further work possible at night Tuesday 31st.
