Waterways Ireland is seeking feedback from greenway users on the recent removal of two kissing gates around Ashtown in Dublin City.
As IrishCycle.com has previously reported, barriers such as kissing gates rarely stop scramblers.
A reader told this website that the issue is being discussed on a local community Facebook group and that “most people seem delighted that Waterways Ireland have done this with lots of supportive comments from parents with buggies, people with disabilities, pedestrians and cyclists”, but that “there are the usual minority scaremongering about scramblers.”
Feedback can be sent to the Waterways Ireland local area engineer, Mervyn Hamilton, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I don’t like scramblers and I don’t care if people on wheelchairs and parents with buggies pay the price”. Are these the ultimate NIMBYs?
