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?"

Reply:

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.
