Pedestrian gates sealed off on new housing development in Ongar

A newly developed housing estate called Barnwell woods in Ongar just of the main Ongar Distributor road and close to the Station roundabout. The development has been completed in the last few years. Unfortunately, both pedestrian exit points which lead out onto the Ongar Distributor road and very close to where local Bus stops are located are completely sealed off with steel fencing. A local Cllr on Fingal County Council has said that its an ongoing issue with the developer. Its a pity that access has been blocked and it means people have to walk large distances to get to the local shops and other services like bus stops.

Another development Mount Symon further east along the road which is more established has blocked entrances also. Last photo in the compliation.
