Brendan Ryan, Labour Party TD for Dublin Fingal, has called for a traffic safety assessment at Blake’s Cross after a string of accidents in recent weeks.
Ryan “The junction at Blake’s Cross on the old N1 and the road to Lusk/Rush/Skerries has seen a string of vehicle accidents in recent weeks. The dangers of this junction have been well known for years but the recent spike in accidents is a major cause for concern. I am calling on Fingal County Council to undertake a safety assessment of the junction with a view to drawing up a safer traffic management plan for this junction. Traffic volumes have increased in the last couple of years and this important intersection in Fingal needs to be upgraded to take into account for this increase. Blakes Cross is the primary entry point for residents of Rush, Lusk and Skerries. It is vital an assessment is done urgently to ensure as best as possible, the safety of drivers at this important point. I have written to the Chief Executive of Fingal County Council regarding my concerns”
