Item No. 41 Dublin City Council Traffic Plans Fairview Park
“That Fingal County Council calls on Dublin City Council to abandon plans to remove one lane of traffic adjacent to Fairview Park. This plan will have a hugely negative impact on Fingal traffic management on several major arterial routes as well as Fingal residents in the North County and Dublin 13 areas who travel into the city by car. This Council calls on the Chief Executive to write to his counterpart in DCC to outline our opposition to the proposed changes on behalf of the thousands of Fingal residents that will be impacted by this proposal”.
