News Update - January 2021
Road markings update 5th January 2021
Email received from DLRCOCO - details below:
I refer to your request for an update regarding road markings. To lay road markings the road conditions need to be dry and greater than 5oC. For that reason it is extremely difficult to renew road markings in winter and while our contractor endeavours to progress through the works it is a very unproductive time of year. I would also note that there is a backlog of work that we are currently trying to clear so the renewal of road markings may take longer than usual.
Road and Footpath repairs
We have followed up our November correspondence with Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council concerning the repair of roads and footpaths in the area. The email response was: "I wish to acknowledge your email, I will add this information onto the CRM 208214 for the attention of our Roads department". We will update this information when we receive further communications from DLRCOCO.
We still await a definitive response to our request for new and upgrade roadmarkings.
