ITEM NO. 18



Question: B. Dennehy

"To ask the Chief Executive examine the area around Rush / Lusk Train Station to

assess 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?"

Reply:

A preliminary assessment was carried out on the R128 in the vicinity of the Rush

Lusk Train Station. The R128 at this location has an 80km\h speed limit requiring

145m of forward visibility to the nearside primary signal or for a pedestrian

stepping onto the pedestrian crossing. Due to the road geometry and existing

bridge width over the rail line 2 separate crossings would be required to

accommodate pedestrians from Rush and Lusk.
