Calls for raised table to be installed at pedestrian crossing on Bloodmill Road

Fianna Fáil councillor Catherine Slattery

THE question was put to the local authority over whether it had considered installing a raised table top at the pedestrian crossing on Bloodmill Road.

According to Cllr Catherine Slattery, cars are failing to stop and a table top ramp needs to be installed as a matter of safety for pedestrians.

Mike Richardson, of the council’s Transportation and Mobility Directorate, explained that the Road’s Department recently completed a traffic survey in this area and is currently liaising with Gardaí to investigate any relevant traffic collision data in this area to determine what road safety improvements should be considered.

“An application for NTA funding to introduce a possible pedestrian improvement scheme through the Active Travel department is also being considered.”
