Long term traffic solution needed for Park Avenue

9 March, 2010

 Sinn Féin Councillor for the Northlands Maeve McLaughlin has said a long term solution is needed to solve traffic problems along the Park Avenue area of Rosemount

  Councillor McLaughlin said

  “Last year Sinn Féin did a door to door in the streets along Park Avenue and got a petition signed calling for urgent traffic reform in the area which has been a major problem  there, particularly at peak times of the day.

Traffic congestion along Park Avenue also has had an impact on the quality of life of local residents and businesses. Because of the geography of the area it’s clear that finding a solution that could help alleviate the problems there with traffic congestion is not going to be easy

 I felt  it was very important to keep this on the agenda of the DRD Road service .I met them again today and they are exploring the possibility of a formal or pilot scheme for the area. This may include a one way system for traffic along Park Avenue

 Local residents will have to be fully consulted before anything can be put in place. A new road scheme could be in place for a minimum of six months or a maximum of eighteen months .If it worked it couldbe applied for to be permanent, if not it can be removed
