The ongoing problems with the management of traffic in East Wall continues to be the subject of discussions at the #DublinCentral Area Committee of Dublin City Council.
At the November meeting of the Committee, recently, I secured agreement from colleagues, as Chairman, to review the progress made previously and consider other measures, following the increase in traffic volumes in the area since the easing of public health restrictions associated with Covid-19. A report will be circulated to Councillors before December 14th next outlining the impact of the short-term measures myself and Councillor Burke secured previously as well as identifying any further problems that have developed in recent weeks and months.
Following the publication of that report, Councillors will meet to discuss the next steps in advancing measures that finally tackle the problems being experienced by East Wallers.
It is my intention that once this meeting has agreed a suite of measures, to host a public meeting, thereby enabling all East Wall householders consider the proposals for the advancement and implementation.
You can read here (https://bit.ly/3wX45tZ) some of the proposals already prepared by Dublin City Council and the draft East Wall Neighbourhood Traffic Scheme in 2019. The ideas and proposals contained in this document will inform Council Engineers and officials as well as my councillor colleagues.
If you have any specific questions or queries arising from the details outlined above, please get in touch with me by email at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.
