School crossing proposal to be further assessed

A full local assessment of how best to provide a safe crossing to Scoil Bhride from the Castlemartin and Cnoc na Greine estates is to be undertaken by Cllr Rob Power in conjunction with the school and residents, writes Brian Byrne.

This follows the matter being raised today at the monthly meeting of Naas MD, where the councillor had asked that Kildare County Council provide such a crossing.

There are currently two roads to be crossed from the estates, the one entering the estates area themselves, and a parallel one to the Kilcullen Community Centre and GAA Club.

In a report, the Council responded that any proposal to upgrade the junction to a controlled one or to have access to a school warden would 'be subject to need and to availability of resources'.

Cllr Power told the Diary afterwards that he will now consult with the residents and the school with a view to deciding what would be the most suitable form of crossing, especially taking into account the expansion of the school currently under way.
