Fingal County Council is proposing to provide improved pedestrian and cycling facilities on Hamilton Road and Harry Reynolds Road in Balbriggan. The scheme will improve accessibility and provide a safer environment for walking and cycling. The development of a high quality cycle and pedestrian network is a key objective to make Balbriggan an attractive place to live, work, visit and do business.
The scheme will encourage increased levels of physical activity and will offer an attractive, sustainable transport choice within Balbriggan for school children and local commuters. It will bring significant benefits to the wider community while contributing to improving health and the environment.
The route of the scheme will directly serve a large number of residential, education and business centres within Balbriggan and will provide safe and attractive links between these. The majority of the population of Balbriggan is within 5 minutes cycle of the proposed scheme, making this a key facility for the whole town.
An Information Evening will take place at the Bracken Court Hotel, Balbriggan on Thursday 21st November from 4:00pm to 8:00pm, where the project team will be available to answer queries on the proposed scheme.
Any interested party is invited to make a submission on the proposed scheme between the dates of 21/11/19 and 19/12/19:
