Re: Re: Before the Bulldozers: Images of a Doomed Suburb
Alonso – I know people who live beside yankee terrace and also in some of the houses up for demolition. It is not all bad news. Some of these people have moved to larger houses due to this road.
I have lived in this immediate area for over 30 years and for most people this road will work fine for reducing the trip from stillorgan to monkstown, I appreciate that people living on the direct route may not be in favour but:
The space along yankee terrace and castlebyrne has been kept for this road for years
Likewise roanbyrne and the farm / strip of land along the side on newpark school hockey pitch
Whoever built fluervile would also have known this road was in planning and the residents there should have looked into it or have been made aware of it.
Classic Irish NIMBY’s- you cannot defer a road that will benefit the wider area due to it affecting a few houses. It would take a lot to doom blackrock. Severnace for some people will be interation for others.
Proper seperated cycle lanes could make this an excellent road.
30,000 vehicles – the M50 only handles 100k!
