Rosepark speed ramps ruled out by council

According to an article today in the Independant.ie:

Our request for speed ramps has yet again been ignored by the council and they have yet again dismissed our concerns around speeding on the main road; having referred to a previous survey to examine speeding on the Balrothery to Skerries (Darceystown Road), that apparently verified speeding was not taking place but “what defines what a safe speed” on this road is what is in question.

The article refers to the fact that the council recommended that a lining scheme (double yellow lines) was proposed to the residents with no response. Our response at the time was that this was not an appropriate solution to the problem, without alternative arrangments being made for parking for residents.

Previously, we were told that speed ramps could not be implemented due to the road being used for Agricultural Traffic. In this latest article, we are now being told that they cannot be implemented due to the gradient of the hill. We find it strange also, that with the gradient of the hill in this densly populated area, such a concern, the council are proposing several new developments in the area which will only add additional traffic to this traffic management black spot.
