Road markings on Mayberry Road are confusing and a hazard

By Aura McMenamin

Road markings drawn on the Mayberry Road in Kilnamanagh are a ‘road hazard’, according to Sinn Féin TD Sean Crowe.

The Dublin South West TD claimed the markings, which have a cycle lane, are too narrow for cars and buses, saying that the signage was confusing for motorists.

Deputy Crowe said it was a ‘talking point’ in the area and called on South Dublin County Council to remove them.

Deputy Crowe said: “It is impossible for a large vehicle to stay within the current markings. I fear it will create a number of insurance problems if an accident should occur on that stretch of road.”

“The road markings are so narrow that a bus or even the smallest of motor vehicles would have difficulty staying within the current markings.”

The Echo reported last December that the council outlined a number of changes to Mayberry Road, which historically has had ongoing problems with traffic congestion.

Some of the measures include removing the various central islands along Mayberry Road, erecting traffic lights at Treepark Road, painting advisory cycle lanes on both sides of the road and completing all road marking and signage.

These problems were heightened following work on Amazon’s new data centre at the former Jacob’s site.

“As someone who regularly travels along the Mayberry Road, passing the Kilnamanagh Shopping Centre and towards the Greenhills Road, the challenge on the road is obvious,” Deputy Crowe said.
