No need for more traffic calming

THE COUNCIL has argued against the need for more traffic calming measures on Brackenstown Road in Swords but has agreed to review the traffic conditions on the road.

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.
