Whatever.. they weren’t off the top of your head… they were in a report which I or the council don’t agree with. And the council has the final decision here.

Did I really lose this argument? Since the road is being built and is now nearly finished, it would seem not.

Monkstown, and the entire southside in general, is low-density suburbia. If you don’t like its car orientation, complain about the density… but don’t complain when function follows form i.e. low density development spurs road building. The area needs roads as it is designed for cars.

What’s the lesson? In future, don’t design for the car. As for Monkstown, it’s too late.
