Residents with Fingal County Council as their local authority may know about their often bad road design and brutal signage. The Roads Department isn’t good at implementing pedestrian or cyclist facilities in thoughtful ways.
There is a gem of an example on Blanchardstown Road South, behind Power City. There is a nice footpath and off-road cycle track that brings you from the nearby Renault garage to … well, that’s it, it doesn’t go anywhere. A little after you turn the corner and pass the pedestrian crossing, the footpath and cycle track just end. How bloody hard would have been to continue to Clonsilla Road, a mere 200 metres. The area is reserved for Metro West so ownership of the land would not have been a problem. Pathetic.
