Dublin 7 Traffic News

Avondale Road & Great Western Square
We have been informed that the ramps approved for Avondale Road will be installed early this year. We are continuing to put pressure on Dublin City Council to provide a date for this long-promised work to be completed.
Pay and Display residents parking has been approved for Avondale Road and Great Western Square. Dublin City Council informs us that they are experiencing delays in implementing these schemes. They have a number of parking metres on order and do plan to have these schemes operational in the first quarter of the year. We will keep you informed of developments.

Pedestrian Crossing at Smithfield
Cllr Emer Costello has asked the Manager to review the decision not to put the pedestrian crossing at the junction of Smithfield and Red Cow Lane (at the Cobblestone) as there is a lot of pedestrian traffic at this junction (particularly during the school term).. The matter is to be re-examined by the Traffic Advisory Group. We will keep you informed of developments.

Traffic on Montpelier Hill
We have received numerous complaints from residents in relation to the traffic mounting the footpath on Montpelier Hill and creating a major hazard for pedestrians.
Following our representations, Dublin City Council has agreed to erect bollards on Montpelier Hill just at the entrance to Montpelier Court to prevent cars from mounting the footpath there.
We are assured that this work is on the 2009 works programme and will keep you informed of developments.
