Following on from the 6 week non-statutory public consultation the report was launched this week with the following recommendations:

  • All gates will remain open and fully accessible as per normal operations with the exception of Cabra Gate, which, as part of the pilot bus service initiative, will be accessible by bus only during the pilot period.
  • The proposal to make the North Road a cul-de-sac has been altered arising from feedback. The proposal is now to pilot a one-way route from Cabra Gate to Garda HQ on this road.
  • A pilot bus service running from Heuston Station via Parkgate Street, Chesterfield Avenue, Cabra Gate to Broombridge Station, subject to funding.
  • The conversion of Ashtown Gate to entry-only and the proposed cul de sac on Knockmaroon Road are postponed until the potential impacts on the surrounding areas are fully understood.

Mary welcomes the decision not to convert the Ashtown gate to entry only and notes that Cabra gate will be bus only for the pilot period. This will be reviewed at the end of the pilot.
