At a meeting on Monday the Area Engineer announced that he is to try to design a footpath on Sea Road, Kilcoole. The National Roads Authority is keen to provide footpaths to stations and should be willing to fund it if there is enough land for it.
3 years ago when the Kilcoole Plan was being prepared I pushed hard to get a path included in the plan as people should be able to walk safely to the station and the beach on this busy road. I am pleased there are now signs of progress. The feasibility study should take most of this year and if feasible I will be pressing to get the construction funded in 2013.
