Report: road for Alderbrook to Garden City Ashbourne

10:48 May 16 2015 Closure of road from killegland rise to Alderbrook road

There is a link road between Garden City & Alderbrook in Ashbourne, Co. Meath. This was shown to be an open road in the original plans but has always remained closed via bollards (please see attachment).

There is a new road to be completed (Johnswood Road), linking two more estates (Brindley & Millbourne) to bring more traffic onto Bourne Avenue increasing the hassle on Garden City residents on entering & exiting the estate as a result. This is to tie in with the new Educational Campus due for completion in September 2016. This will cater for well over 1,000 pupils from a wide catchment area including Kilbride, Cushenstown, Oldtown, Garristown, Ardcath, Tara and Clonalvey, on top of the extra traffic already introduced into Garden City due to the location of one of our National Schools. This new educational Campus is to be located at the top of Bourne Avenue.

My concern is not only limited to school times, but all times, particularly with the new link road introducing more traffic onto Bourne Avenue, making it harder to enter/exit the estate.

If this road could be (re)opened, not only would this tie in with original plans but would also benefit residents of both estates, local business would more than likely see an upturn in business, due to easier access from Alderbrook & parents would benefit when bringing children to the National School in Garden city.
