Fine Gael Councillors in Dublin Central, Ray McAdam and Colm O’Rourke have confirmed that Dublin City Council has allocated €2.6m in funding this year to deliver a Local Roads Improvement programme and Footpath Enhancement Scheme across Dublin Central.

With people spending more time in their own area due to the pandemic, it is more important than ever to improve the quality of local footpaths and ensure that our streets and avenues are in quality condition. Coupled with the fact that households pay their Local Property Tax, it is only right that they see the benefits of that tax in their own neighbourhood. This is why Colm and I have worked with local residents, community associations across Cabra Glasnevin and the North Inner City as well as City Council Engineers to deliver a programme of works in Dublin Central that meet these demands.

Resurfacing works of roads across Dublin Central set to take place this year, include:

  • Finglas Road (sections between Dalcassian Downs & St. Philomena’s Road)
  • Prospect Way (sections between Finglas Rooad & Prospect Way) 
  • Cabra Road (sections between Navan Road & North Circular Road)
  • Dorset Street (sections between North Circular Road & Whitworth Road)
  • Drumcondra Road Lower (sections between Whitworth Road & Clonliffe Road)
  • River Road (sections between Pellettstown Manor & Ratoath Road)
  • Amiens Street (sections between Store Street & Talbot Street)
  • Beresford Place (sections between Store Street & Amien Street)
  • Blackhall Place (sections between King Street North & Hendrick Street)
  • East Wall Road (Sections between Alfie Byrne Road & Forth Road)
  • North Circular Road (Sections Leo Street & Berkeley Road)
  • Queen Street (sections between King Street North & Blackhall Street)
  • Ferguson Road (patches & speed ramps)
  • Walsh Road (speed ramps)
  • Millmount Avenue (speed ramps)
  • Monck Place (entire carriageway)
  • Olaf Road (entire carriageway)
  • Sitric Place (patches between Sitric Road & Norseman Place)
  • Prospect Avenue (patches between Prospect Way & Prospect Square)
  • St. Teresa’s Road (entire stretch between Prospect Avenue & St. Teresa’s Place)
  • Strand Street Great (entire carriageway)

A further part of the €2.6m in funding myself and Councillor Colm O’Rourke has secured involves a Footpath Enhancement Scheme this year. Streets that will see footpaths improved, include:

  • Leix Road
  • Violet Hill Park
  • St. Jarlath Road
  • Ratoath Estate
  • Clonmore Road
  • Clonmore Terrace

As 2021 progresses and Dublin City Council undertakes a tender process to select contractors for these works, both Councillor O’Rourke and I will keep residents and households living on affected streets updated with details of when exactly the works will take place.
