[Services A – Operational Matters]

Thursday, 12th May 2016

ITEM NO. 17



Question: Councillor B. Dennehy

“To ask the Chief Executive to examine and bring forward measures that will help

alleviate the traffic congestion accruing on the road outside both the Educate

Together Primary School and the Lusk Post Primary School on drop off and

collection times as the situation is constantly worsening as the pupil numbers

increase?”

Reply:

Traffic issues at the Lusk ETNS and the Lusk Community College were discussed

at a meeting in March 2016 between Fingal County Council (including an elected

member), the principals of both schools, Dublin Dun-Laoghaire Education and

Training Board (DDLETB). The issue of parking, traffic movement and the

widening of Raheny Lane were discussed at length. The DDLETB advised that the

Department of Education recognises that the management, parking, and safety

of traffic associated with pick up and drop off is better addressed within the

school campus. It is understood that the DDLETB plan to construct a long

avenue around the boundary of both schools that will incorporate set down

areas. This layout should, if used, remove traffic parking from Raheny Lane

allowing safer unrestricted traffic movements on Raheny Lane.
