Main Street, Naul – Traffic Survey

COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL

FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING

[Services A – Operational Matters]

Thursday, 10th December 2015

ITEM NO. 58



Question: Councillor B. Dennehy

“To ask the Chief Executive to carry out a traffic survey with the intention of

providing a pedestrian crossing at the school end of Naul Main street to allow

crossing of the road to Residents and Pupils attending the local school as

currently there is no designated area to cross the road from Delvin Banks up as

far as the school itself?”

Reply:

There are ‘school children crossing’ signs with warning lights, and ‘school children

crossing’ signs on both approaches to the school.

The pedestrian footfall, combined with traffic volumes, would not be considered

high enough to prioritise the provision of a pedestrian crossing at this location.

The request for a pedestrian crossing will be given consideration in future works

programmes, if and when a source of funding becomes available. Schemes are

prioritised primarily on the basis of traffic volumes, road safety benefit and

accident reduction.
