County Council Officials To Publish Report On Proposed Plans To Close Herbert Road In Bray

Between September and November last year, the Council carried out a public consultation to determine public attitudes to a proposed N11 / M11 Bus Priority Interim Scheme

The level of opposition to the plans have been confirmed by the Council which stated that there was a significant negative response to the proposed closure of the N11 access to the Herbert Road.

The Council are currently preparing a post publication consultation report.

In a statement Wicklow Sinn Fein TD John Brady said:

“In November I submitted a Sinn Féin petition opposing the plans as they had been presented to the public. The strength of public opinion on the issue can be seen from the 1,853 signatories to the petition.

In addition, there were a further 1,152 submissions, including one which I submitted in my own name, in which I outlined the reasons for my strong opposition to the existing plans.

It is absolutely clear that the primary issue of concern for members of the public which was evident across the submissions to the Council concerned the closure of the Herbert Road Junction, and the installation of a traffic lights system at Hill Garage in place of the existing roundabout.

I further call upon the Council to listen to the voices in the community who have and continue to express widespread opposition to a scheme which if it is allowed to go ahead will create traffic chaos in Bray.”
