ITEM NO. 7
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy
"To ask the Chief Executive after examining the area around Rush / Lusk Train
Station in June 2017 and having assessed the best area to locate a pedestrian
crossing to facilitate a safe and protected road crossing for the large number of
pedestrians exiting the trains station on route to either the bus stop opposite or
accessing the pedestrian routes to Rush or Lusk to bring forward proposals to
complete the project as part of the 2018 works programme?"
An initial assessment of the area in the vicinity of the Rush/Lusk Train station
was carried in 2017. The provision of a pedestrian crossing may require the
acquisition of land and the relocation of the bus stops which can only be
determined on completion of a detailed design. Work on the design is ongoing
and it is hoped that a proposal will be presented to this committee in 2018.
Monies have been provided in the draft programme for 2018 for the installation
of a solar powered sign as well as a pedestrian crossing.
