COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday 9th October, 2014
ITEM NO. 38
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy:
" To ask the Chief Executive to outline what traffic calming measures can be carried out to resolve the on going
numerous complaints and reports of near accidents conveyed by residents primarily residing in the high density
populated area where the Palmer Road meets the Skerries Road?"
A Speed Survey was undertaken between Palmer Avenue and the Skerries Rush Road in July 2013. The survey
was carried out over a 3 day period and it was established that the average speed of vehicles on this section of
road was 36km/h. While the area will be monitored, the results of the survey did not indicate that this location
was high priority for traffic calming measures.
