Report: Street Lighting needed

11:45 Sep 16 2020 Near Lott Lane, Kilcoole Co. Wicklow

Good morning,

I hope this finds you well. I wish to highlight a few issues with the Lott Lane Road in Kilcoole. There has been some work done on it in recent years to improve the paths which has made the road safer but there are two issues.

1) Lack of adequate street lighting in parts makes the road dangerous for pedestrians at night and discourages residents from any night time stroll etc. The village has become a hub of activity throughout COVID as people tend to stay in the village more often but the lack of street lighting makes the street unsafe and people avoid it.

2) The road itself is laid out in a way that does not discourage dangerous driving. Many houses open directly onto the road and many estates lead out onto the road too. With many pedestrians and cyclists using the road it worrying the speed at which cars use it. Possible solutions that should be examined and implemented if possible are:
- Speed calming measures such as narrowing the road (a second footpath could be installed as only one side has one currently) this would be much more welcomed than speed bumps and have been proven to be almost as effective. The footpath is particularly needed at the blind turn into Wellfield estate.

The combination of lighting and speed calming measures would make this stretch of road safe, accessible and be heartily welcomed by the village.

I hope to hear back from you soon on this.

Kind regards,
