He referred in particular to the section from the entrance road to Kerry Bio towards Carrigaline GAA Club. Residents had contacted him about it and he asked it be looked at by the area office because there was a heavy traffic volume on a road that also served an industrial estate and primary health care centre which hadn’t been improved for many years.
Executive engineer Andy O’Brien replied that speeding was essentially a Garda enforcement issue but undertook to have a look at the section of road and possibly discuss it with the Gardai.
Cllr White also requested protective bollards near Avondale Soccer Club on the road between Leacht Cross and Herons Wood, Carrigaline. It was a widely walked route which was also used as a rat run from the Ringaskiddy road to Carrigaline. Bollards would give refuge for pedestrians at the corner. The engineer replied that further development was planned for the area but undertook to look at it.
At the previous meeting, Cllr Seamus McGrath (FF) enquired about the capacity limit under the permit for under the planning permission for a waste facility for a site at Meadstown, Ballinhassig off the Forest Road.
