Roundabout Revamp

RoundAboutSignThe roundabout that we all know and love so well has become somewhat overgrown, tired and undefined in recent years. It has also become a dumping ground for rubbish and grass cuttings. In its current state the roundabout requires a lot of man hours to maintain and considerable watering, both of which are unsustainable.

Your committee have decided that a revamp of the roundabout is long overdue and we have been working with a landscape gardener and DLRCC who will assist with this project. We will embark on a major transformation of the roundabout over the coming months that we see us through the next 50 years, with new trees and plants and some hard landscaping too.

We look forward to the unveiling of the new roundabout and please bear with us while it’s under construction. We are confident that the new revamped roundabout will be a wonderful addition to Balally estate and visually appealing to all.
