As you may have noticed there were water main repairs and upgrades taking place within the estate over recent months. While the majority of the repairs are now complete, the reinstatement of paths and verges still requires a lot of work, and have been like this for a considerable amount of time.
We have been in touch with both Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and GMC, the contractors, to express our concern with the delays and quality of the work. DLRCC have given us assurances that they will work with their crews over the coming weeks to make all repairs necessary. We are especially aware of the need to do this right, as only last year the council had done a great job in upgrade works throughout the estate.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is introducing a special speed limit of a 30km/h in identified residential housing estates and local residential roads. Balally estate is on the list of roads that will have this change, and the council will introduce the new limits and alert signs in the coming weeks. See the Council’s page for more information. Gardai distributed this information leaflet during the week.
For anyone who grew up in Sandyford (or lived in the Park), this photo was taken in 1948 of of Clonard House/IMI on the right. The fields in the background would become Balally, Wedgewood and Moreen.
