— Officials hope some traffic calming could be implemented by March or April 2022.
NEWS IN BRIEF: Dublin City Council officials expect to have a report on the public consultation for the Belmont Avenue traffic calming scheme finalised by the end of this month, and to present it to South East area councillors soon afterwards.
Option 1 put forward at the public consultation stage made a short section of Belmont Avenue, from the Sandford Road end of the street to Belmont Gardens one-way for motorists, with a contra-flow cycle lane for people cycling.
Option 2 includes filtered permeability at the Sandford Road end the street, which means that all of Belmont Avenue would remain two-way, but access would be limited to walking, cycling and emergency access at the Sandford Road end.
Both options would allowed for motoring access to all houses and in both options the Donnybrook Road end of the street would remain two-way for local access.
A spokesperson for the council said: “Dublin City Council have engaged with a consultant to prepare a report to prepare a post consultation report. This report is not yet finalised. Once the report is finalised it will be presented to the South East Councillors. We are hoping that the report will be finalised by the end of February 2022 and would hope to implement some traffic calming intervention in March / April 2022.”
