Hearse Road Closure

Post by Ken » 27 May 2019, 18:42

Dear All,

For your information, I attach a copy of an advertisement that will appear in the Fingal Independent tomorrow, Tuesday 28th May 2019.

It is advising the public that a road closure application has been received from GMC Utilities on behalf of Irish Water to temporarily close Hearse Road, Donabate, nightly.

Further details of the closure will also be available on the Consultation Portal, at https://consult.fingal.ie from Tuesday 28th May 2019.

Regards Fingal County Council

It took them a couple of months to do the length of the Beaverstown Road. At that rate, 6 months could be overly optimistic.

6months is very optimistic, beaverstown road was a joke and they’ve dug it up at least 10times since, at least the recent repairs were done correctly and sealed up properly

Expansion of road before railway bridge: they appear to be building an exit/entrance onto it off Prospect Hill development?!!!!

Seems there is more interest in getting the access done rather than the road widened, but maybe I'm just getting old and cynical. I assume a couple of houses going in there.

There is planning permission for four detached houses on that site IIRC. It was granted around two years ago. I suppose they have to wait until the entrance is complete before they start building. It's a strange location for an entrance.

if the entrance to the new estate is where it looks like they are putting it, ie: pretty much on the bridge, then i dont think ive ever seen a more ridiculous planning permission. that is going to be incredibly incredibly dangerous. But then again, ive come to expect this in donabate

The wall that is being built runs up to existing railway Bridge wall so how would bridge ever be expanded?
The planning is as shite as we've come to expect.

My understanding of this 6 month closure is that the road is to be closed between 10pm and 6am.

However the electronic signs leading up to the Hearse Road coming from Swords are now displaying road closed between 8pm and 6am.

I understand they were allowed to put in temporary traffic lights on stretches between 8pm and 10pm, but the last few nights ive been travelling up the road at 7.45pm and the lights are in place causing significant delays into the village.

Anyone know whats going on and why they are allowed to operate outside the permission?
