Redesdale Estate, Kilmacud.  
At a meeting of Dundrum Area Committe on 3rd February 2020, councillor Barry Saul requested an update from the Chief Executive on the promised provision of new road markings and safety improvements in Redesdale Estate. Below is the response to his request.
The Traffic Section noted that there is no specific budget for traffic calming measures in the 2019 Council Capital Programme. However it is envisaged that estates which weren't considered for inclusion in 2017 for the Special 30Km/hr. Speed Limit Zones will be identified later in 2019 with a view to considering them for inclusion in the next round of the Special Speed Limit Bye laws.
This will include Redesdale Estate. As part of this consideration all traffic calming measures suggestions by the residents will be included in the assessment, with the view to undertaking such works when funding becomes available.
In advance of funding for traffic calming measures, the Traffic Section proposes to introduce some low cost road safety measures into Redesdale Estate, in terms of road markings and signage, over the coming weeks, when the weather improves.
The road marking issue was also raised by councillor Maeve O'Connell, specifically for Dale Road, on 7th October 2019. She was informed the re-line of the existing road markings on Dale Road will be included in the Road Markings Contrctor's work list.
In reply to another item of concern, the Chief Executive informed councillor O'Connell, the Traffic Section will undertake a traffic speed and volume survey on Rathmore Avenue, as soon as resources allow.
We need you...
The residents association wants to enhance our local catchment area by strategically planting flowers and generally cleaning up the shrubbery and improving the aesthetics of Redesdale Garden Estate. As we head into springtime we are calling on all our neighbours to volunteer their time in carrying out this task. It is important to maintain and improve conditions in the area, and tasks such as this encourages community and social interaction for the benefit of all our families. You can email for further information.

We also need input from residents in the area for inclusion in our website. To this end we are looking for stories, current or of bygone days, current news, likewise photos, specifically old photos of the area for a 'then and now' project. The [ sample] aerial images here show Redesdale under construction in the 1950's and how it looks today in the Google Earth photo.
