Traffic Calming Measures for the Brackenstown Road in Swords

I have made representations to the Council regarding traffic calming on the Brackenstown Road in Swords adjacent to the new children’s playground.

Residents are seeking the completion of the traffic calming measures on this road. They have indicated to me that the existing traffic calming measures (speed ramps) do not address the traffic coming from the Swords Manor direction. Some motorists are travelling at very high speeds down the road until they meet the first speed ramp, this effectively means they are at their fastest speed as they pass many houses on the road.

Essentially what is being requested is traffic calming measures outside the 20 or so houses that have none currently. Since the opening of the new children’s playground the volume of pedestrian traffic has increased on the road.
