Coast Road Malahide Upgrade

16/02/2009

At a local area committee for the Howth/Malahide Ward the council have committed tens of thousands of Euro to improve road safety at a dangerous bend on the Coast Road, between Malahide & Portmarnock. The bend, know locally as High Rock has been subject to many accidents over the years, the most recent of which occurred in January 2009. In 2007, an elderly motorist was sadly killed on this stretch of road and at Council level I have been appealing to the Council to make the necessary improvements to avoid further loss of life.

The council plan to improve the road surface and remove the parking bay at this corner in order to ensure that no more vehicles can leave the carriageway.
