Moynihan Welcomes Upgraded Safety Crossing At Rowlagh Supervalu

Shane Moynihan Safety Crossing Rowlagh

Cllr Shane Moynihan, Fianna Fáil Councillor for Palmerstown-Fonthill has welcomed the Council’s upgrade of the pedestrian crossing at Rowlagh Super Valu. The Council recently completed upgrade works at the busy crossing which has substantially improved it from a safety point of view. ‘The pedestrian crossing at Rowlagh SuperValu is one of the busiest in the North Clondalkin Area. However, there have been persistent concerns raised around its safety with me, most recently when I was calling to residents in Rowlagh earlier this year.’ 

Shane discussed the dangerous crossing with Council Engineers in April and the outcomes of this resulted in upgrades or amendments being recommended to the beacon layout, the raised table and the existing barriers. ‘The feedback I have received from users of this crossing about these upgrade works has been overwhelmingly positive and I am happy to see those with mobility difficulties and older people able to cross the road in a much safer manner.’ 

Since being elected, Shane has advocated for safer crossings at busy areas to improve things for pedestrians. Areas where he has been successful in securing better crossings include opposite Hermitage Park in Lucan, on the Neilstown Road, opposite Collinstown Park and now at Rowlagh SuperValu. Moynihan concluded ‘Improved pedestrian crossings make our roads and footpaths safer for people who walk, drive and cycle. I would encourage people to let me know of crossings they feel are unsafe so I can raise with the Council.’
