Report: Yellow box junction URGENTLY required Citywest road / Saggart Abbey entrance

09:30 Jan 12 2018 Near Citwest road at junction of Saggart Abbey Estate.

Description
At the junction of Saggart Abbey estate with the Citywest Road there is urgent need for a yellow box (junction box). With the heavy and consistent volume of traffic on the Citywest road, the entrance / exit to Saggart Abbey is constantly being blocked which results in backed-up traffic for cars on Citywest road turning into the estate and / or cars attempting to exit from the estate onto the road. The problem is severely compounded when cars are attempting to exit the estate and turn right towards the N81 which is impossible as the citywest road is blocked and there is no exit route possible. This is a serious safety issue because - if in an emergency - an ambulance, gardai or fire brigade needed access to or exit from the estate it would be next to impossible, given the current state of traffic and lack of required (and appropriate) road markings.
This issue is becoming critical and needs to be addressed. -- posted via fixyourstreet.ie

Statutory Approval has been sought for this measure and once approval has been received from the Gardai, the works will be issued to the lining contractor for installation. This process can take approximately three to four months.
