Residents from the Dublin 6 area are invited to a meeting on the proposed South Dublin Quietway this week as the organisers warned of “serious consequences” for residents.
Quiteways are a type of cycle route which mainly use quite roads and streets or streets which are traffic calmed when the routes are put in place.
The last meeting on the route was proceeded by the circulation of an anonymous leaflet with misinformation, including details of route options which were not recommended to be used. That meeting heard objections including claims that the quiteway would devalue property and infringe on one of the objector’s constitutional right to enjoy his property.
A seprate leaflet for the meeting this week which was distributed around Cowper Road area said: “This proposal may have serious consequences for you with traffic rerouting and road closures using BOLLARDS.”
The meeting is planned to take place this Wednesday evening at 7.30pm at the Mageough Home on Cowper Road.
The quietway was proposed by Cllr Paddy Smyth (Fine Gael), but the meeting on Wednesday seems to be organised people less convinced about the proposal.
