DRAFT drawings for the council's preferred route for a new road aimed at ending a controversial rat run through Moylaragh and improving access to Castlemill Shopping Centre will be put on public display this month.
Fingal County Council hope to have plans for the preferred 'red route' of the new road on public display as early as this week. Responding to a request for an update on the project by Cllr. Gráinne Maguire (NP) at the September meeting of Balbriggan Town Council, the local authority said: 'Fingal County Councils consultant have prepared a number of options for detailed consideration based on the preferred 'red route option', as outlined to the Balbriggan/Swords Area Committee Meeting of the 14th June 2012. 'A number of various alignment/ junction options of the red route from the Naul Road at St.George's National School to the Moylaragh Road/Barons Hall Rise junction were examined in detail and the council has now instructed their consultants to prepare drawings based on route configuration that provide the optimum benefit to the residents of the adjacent estates in the area.' These drawings are currently being drafted and will be put on display. 'It is anticipated that the display process will commence within the week commencing September 10,' the council added. Following the consultation period, in which the public may submit comments, a report will be prepared for consideration at a meeting of Fingal County Council.'
