Provide safe crossing place for school community at Rathgar Junior School

We would like a safe place for the children, staff and parents to cross the road to access the school building.

Why is this important?

We would like a safe place for the children, staff and parents to cross the road to the school premises. Ideally, we would like a traffic warden/lollipop man/lady, a zebra crossing, ramps to slow oncoming traffic - especially from the roundabout and a pedestrian lights to help all members of the school community cross the road safely. We would like 'School Ahead' signs put up to warn drivers to excise caution. We would like these located in front of the school where we currently have zig zag lines, as we do not want children to be crossing the road between cars.Currently we have 167 pupils in our Junior School plus 19 children who attend Montessori on our premises. We have 21 members of full time staff and parents who also may cross the road to come to school.

Councillor Patrick Costello announced that all councillors unanimously agreed to pass a motion to support our school in our application to Dublin City Council. 'At yesterdays meeting it was agreed that the best way forward was to get the traffic engineers to come visit the school and meet with you and Councillors. That way we can be all clear on what is need, and when it can be delivered, and any differences can be dealt with straight away! The engineers however won't be available until January. I will let you know details of the meeting when I get them. In the meantime I will talk with them and the road safety section about more immediate actions.'
