Cllr Darragh Butler (FF) asked for an extension of the existing traffic calming measures on the road and a new pedestrian crossing in the area. But the council's transportation department said: ' There are a large number of ramps situated on the Brackenstown Road in the vicinity of St. Cronan's School and the last of which is outside nos 53/54 Brackenstown Village. ' This section of road has good visibility on both approaches. The road continues further down towards Swords Manor and Parkview. ' This section of road does not have any ramps but has a signallised pedestrian crossing at the shops. This section of road will be reviewed and if deemed necessary a further report will issue for the need, if any, of any further traffic calming measures. ' There are a number of ' School Children Crossing' signage on both approaches and a school warden service is provided at school times and speed limit signs will be reviewed on the Brackenstown Road.
