Hayestown Road - Rush Footpath Improvement 2013
COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday 11th December, 2014
ITEM NO. 7
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy
"To ask the Chief Executive what progress has been made at the Old Road and Hayestown junction project?”
The Council remains committed to the provision of a footpath connection at the old cottage in Hayestown. A
proposal to construct a footpath at this location was approved in 2011 by the elected members but the project
could not proceed because of land acquisition difficulties. Eventually, the Council had to go through the
Compulsory Purchase Order procedure to secure the necessary land, and this process has progressed
satisfactorily and is nearing conclusion.
Subject to the availability of finance, it is proposed to have this scheme completed in 2015.
