Reopen the Beaufield Manor public pathway

Why is this important?

This is a public pathway that has existed since the 1980s. 100s of children use this as their route to school every day, and the route around will add almost a kilometre to their journey.

For kids starting as young as 5 years old, this will make walking infeasible, and will result in hundreds of additional car journeys. This will likely undo years of progress the school has made in promoting a green school commute policy.

The school has been in existence long before the houses in this estate were even built, and the footpath access was negotiated by the school, at the time the Beaufield Manor estate was initially granted planing permission in the late 1980s.

Ironically, this measure will also cause traffic mayhem at the front entrance to Beaufield Manor - the gated housing estate that decided to block the pedestrian access in the first place. It also prevents the Beaufield Manor residents having a pedestrian access shortcut towards Kilmacud, Sandyford Business Park, and the nearby Luas. It is in nobody's interest, and is very shortsighted.
