Question: Councillor D. Smith:
“To ask the Chief Executive to indicate if any plans have been discussed in
the last year to provide a pedestrian footbridge at Pinnock Hill
roundabout linking Airside pedestrian traffic to Swords including school
going children walking from Holywell to Colaiste Choilm?”


The progression of designs for the public realm including pedestrian
infrastructure at this location has been dependent on the final chosen
design for the MetroLink rail scheme, which will likely run through the
Pinnock Hill Roundabout. Accordingly, no plans for the provision of a
pedestrian footbridge have been discussed at this location within the last
year, pending the publication of the MetroLink proposals.
Now that the MetroLink scheme has commenced public consultation, we
expect the chosen route option to be finalised and confirmed by
Transport Infrastructure Ireland in the near future. On receipt of the
confirmed layout, a more detailed assessment of the future pedestrian
and general traffic requirements, including the specific pedestrian
provisions, will be considered.
