Report: Whitebeam Road/Whitethorn Road Rat-Run

11:52 Jul 22 2020 Near Whitebeam Road/Whitethorn Road

There is significant amounts of rat-running from motorists coming from Dundrum Road/Milltown Bridge Road and using Whitebeam Road/Whitethorn Road as a short-cut and rat-run.

Can you please look into trialing filtered permeability for Whitebeam Road/Whitethorn Road please, in order to reduce rat-run motor traffic

Filtered permeability is the future for residential & neighbourhood streets. Rat-running is anti-social.

Filters don't have to look like Checkpoint Charlie.
Once a successful trial has been completed, the filters can be enhanced to improve the street's aesthetic & biodiversity

Traffic filters result in positive changes to local travel patterns, such as children being able to walk or cycle to school & sports clubs, and people walking or cycling to local shops, instead of driving for journeys under 2km. -- posted via
