How can we help?

Why is there a need for new roads and bridges as others are already available?

The transport assessment undertaken for the Maynooth Line level crossing closures concludes that a vehicular/cyclist/pedestrian bridge to serve Coolmine communities and the wider area (north and south of the railway/canal corridor) is very important to existing and future traffic management. If the level crossing is closed without the provision of a new relief bridge, then the capacity of Diswellstown Road/Dr Troy Bridge would be significantly adversely impacted. Journey times for road users would be increased and future land use development potential would be impacted.
