Cllr Emma Murphy welcomes new pedestrian safety pledge by Dublin City Council
Dublin Sinn Féin city councillor Emma Murphy has welcomed the commitment by Dublin City Council to introduce pedestrian safety measures at the junction of Broombridge Road and Ballyboggan Road.
Speaking after the
North West Area Committee Cllr Murphy said:
"This is an issue we have been pushing for some time now and I'm happy to see that the construction of the pedestrian island at the junction of Broombridge/Ballyboggan Road is expected to be completed in the Spring. This route is heavily used by commuters, a number of which are school children so the introduction of this safety measure is long overdue and it can't come quick enough."
"At the moment crossing at the spot is hazardous because of the volume of traffic and with the new bridge at Ratoath Rd due to open in February we can only expect an increase in the numbers of vehicles on the route. The introduction of the pedestrian island will hopefully go some way in increasing pedestrian safety."
