Report: Footpaths for children during building works

11:31 May 17 2019 Near Donabate

Hello, the temporary footpaths put in place by the builders constructing the new distributor road in Donabate are not safe for children coming to and from school.

The location where is is particularly poor is on the intersection of the New Road with the distributor road, at one brief point, the path disappears completely. It is unsafe. It is not sufficient for persons with a disability either.

To whom it may concern, Thank you for your email highlighting your concerns regarding works on the Balcarrick Road, Donabate. We had already received a number of complaints in relation to the path on Ballcarrick Road, and during a recent site visit we had asked on site that pedestrian facilities along the Balcarrick Road be improved and we will reiterate that instruction again. I am aware some improvements have already been made to the pedestrian facilities along the Balcarrick Road however I have passed on your concerns to the site staff and I have requested that the RE staff make regular visits throughout the day to monitor the measures in place. Also our engineer has advised the contractor, MEIC, as footpaths should be accessible as part of their traffic management plan.
