BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
(Services B – Strategic & General Matters)
WEDNESDAY 11TH APRIL, 2018
ITEM NO. 47
Question Councillor B. Dennehy
"To ask the Chief Executive to bring forward proposals to construct a new
access road from the R132 onto the M1 after the Turvey Avenue junction
and before the Lissenhall dual carraige way road heading southwards that
will serve the growing populations of Skerries, Rush, Lusk and Donabate?"
Any provision of a new access road from the R132 onto the M1 is a matter
for Transport Infrastructure Ireland. We are not aware that they have any
current plans in this regard. Likewise, Fingal County Council are not
advancing this proposal at present as it is not listed as an objective within
the County Development Plan. The County Development Plan does show
as an objective, however, the Swords Western Bypass crossing the M1 in
this vicinity, the provision of which may alleviate some congestion at this
location for traffic travelling to Swords and southwest Fingal.
