Whites Town Road, Rush – Traffic

COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL

FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

BALBRIGGAN/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE MEETING

[Services A – Operational Matters]

12th March 2015

ITEM NO. 81



Motion: Councillor B. Dennehy:

“That the Chief Executive examine and make recommendations to reduce the

excessive speeding and the dangerous overtaking of traffic entering and exiting the

Town of Rush on the Whitestown Road on the stretch of road from the Centra Shop

to Ardline House where the white lines on the road have been eroded down to dots

currently"

Report:

The Whitestown Road from the Centra shop to the Ardline House has a number of

traffic calming ramps at present. The placement of further ramps, on a regional

route, to the west of the existing ramps would prove difficult due to the layout of the

junctions and entrances.

An alternative option would be to convert the traffic calming cushion, the last one as

you leave Rush, with a full width ramp. It is recommended that this option is given

further consideration and would be subject to Garda approval, public consultation

and a source of funding being available.

The white lining will be reviewed
