My second motion at yesterday’s (20th June) MD meeting, ‘That the council reassure residents of Athgarvan that the necessary road widening of the Athgarvan Road and upgrade of the water pumping station will be completed before any further building is permitted that would contribute further to the traffic and sewage issues in the area.
Here is the report issued by: Ms E Wright, Senior Executive Officer, Roads Transportation and Public Safety Section.: Road widening will involve land acquisition by Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) which is costly and will take time to complete. There is no funding in place for the road widening of the Athgarvan Road at this time. The Roads Department will continue engage with the Planning Department and Water Services with regard to future proposed projects in the Athgarvan area.
