FINGAL COUNTY Council has said it is preparing Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) documents to make way for the long-promised Holywell Link Road which has been delayed by negotiations with local landowners.
Those discussions with landowners on the transfer of land required for the project are continuing but the council said that CPO documentation is 'now in the process of being compiled'. Updating Cllr Darragh Butler (FF) on the safety measures that will come with the road project, the council said: 'As part of the Part 8 Planning approval for the Holywell Link Road Scheme Fingal County Council approved additional road safety measure on Holywell Avenue in the vicinity of the Educate Together School. ' These measures included the provision of a raised platform over the full junction of Holywell Avenue, Holywell Way and the school exit with zebra crossings provided on the two main approaches. There is a zebra crossing further north near the vehicular entrance to the school as well as additional signing and lining relating to the school. ' The provision of rumble strips was not deemed appropriate for the area due to the proximity of residential development.' The local authority added: 'It is the intention to deliver these measures as part of the Holywell Link Road or separately as soon as possible subject to the approval of funding for the scheme from the NTA. ' The issue of recruitment of additional school wardens for the new schools in Fingal will require approval from the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government.'
