Engineers have informed me today that Work on the above is expected to commence within the next 3 (maybe 2)weeks, subject to final paper work from our contractor being in order.
The Roads allocations for 2012 have just been announced this evening and Im absolutely ecstatic the 1M has been allocated to the section of road Clarkes’ Hill /Moneygourney. This section of road is long overdue upgrading and as I walk it most days and see how dangerous it is to pedestrians and inadequate for motorists, I am very pleased with the allocation. The a/manager recently informed me that a new design is currently been drawn up for Bus Standing area and pedestrian crossing and Ive no doubt that it should be all systems go from now on. Much thanks to Minister Leo Veradkar and the local Minister and TD, Simon Coveney and Jerry Buttimer respectively.
The pressure and volume of traffic on the Rochestown Road has been a cause of much gnashing of teeth and under breath comments from parents anxious to get the kids to school and commuters coming from Passage West Carrigaline. Many have contacted me over the years complaining with due cause about the 30 min delays in getting into Douglas to work, drop the children to schools or access into City or the East and West.
I have just received an update regarding the resurfacing works on the Clarke’s Hill/Moneygourney roads taking in the entrance to Mount Oval Village and the Garryduff area. As residents of the area will know, upgrades have been underway for sometime now and I was anxious to establish when they can expect these to conclude.
In response to my enquiries, I have been notified by the engineer that the council “intend starting the laying of water main and drainage between Garryduff and Foxwood in the coming weeks. On completion of this work, we will then undertake surfacing work of the entire area in the months of August / September. The surfacing works will take a period of approximately 4 to 6 weeks to complete”.
