My first motion at 18th of May MD meeting along with Cllrs. Tracey O’Dwyer, Chris Pender, Peggy O’Dwyer, Noel Heavey and Rob Power;
That following a formal written update to the Kildare-Newbridge Councillors, Kildare County Council issue a Press Statement to include a complete map showing all proposed cycleways in Newbridge and the connectivity between them, public and councillor feedback received to date, actions taken on foot of this feedback and next steps for this project.
Here is the report issued by Ms P Pender, A/Senior Executive Officer, Roads, Transportation and Public Safety Department. A Frequently Asked Questions document relating to Active Travel Schemes has been prepared, as requested, and circulated to all members of Kildare County Council for their information. A copy of the document will be made available on the Council’s website. As outlined in detail at the April Municipal District meeting, there is an allocation from the National Transport Authority within the 2022 Programme of Works for the Sustainable Transport Section to progress the design of a permanent cycle track and pedestrian scheme from the N7 Curragh Interchange to the R445 / Great Connell Road Roundabout and from the Mains Street/R416 junction (at the Newbridge Post Office) to the Newbridge Railway Station. This scheme will be brought forward to the members when the preliminary design stage is completed in 2023.
With regard to circulating all public correspondence regarding the Temporary Cycle and Seating Infrastructure Project on Main Street & Edward Street, Newbridge, this information is being collated and will be circulated to the elected members.
