COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday, 9th April 2015
ITEM NO. 21
Question: Councillor B Dennehy
"To ask the Chief Executive to have the ditches on either side of the entrance of the
Whitestown Road exit cut back or instruct landowners to cut the growth back in
order to make the oncoming traffic more visible?"
The exit from Healy’s Lane onto the Whitestown Road has restricted sightline
visibility due to the location of the existing private boundary hedging/ walls. The
hedging is currently maintained to an acceptable standard by the private landowner.
Sightline visibility improvements would require land acquisition at this location and
discussions are ongoing with the relevant parties concerned.
