  1. is there any point in campaigning to have certain roads (L roads) reclassified as prioritising cyclists,walkers,farm traffic,etc. and to discourage commuters in cars from using them?imagine what that could mean for ireland

  2. Nice idea, but not a hope unfortunately. We have allowed almost every boreen in the country to become a low-density settlement while towns and villages fall into disrepair. The people who live on the minor roads will raise an almighty ruckus if there is any threat to their ability to drive wherever they want. Country politicians would never allow it. Yet another reason why on-off housing is a bad idea. In Europe, people can buy a cheap site and build large well-appointed houses, but only in the traditional style of the region and in specified areas close to settlements where services are centralized and accessible and transport links are effective. We get it arseways so a few farmers can make a bit of extra money and people can build McMansions in the middle of nowhere.
