Extinguishment of Public Right of Way over a walkway on the Oscar Traynor Development Site

Closed 6 Jul 2022

Opened 24 May 2022


In accordance with Section 73 (1) of the Roads Act 1993 Dublin City Council hereby gives notice that it is considering the proposal to Extinguish the Public Right of Way over a walkway across land known as the Oscar Traynor Development Site. The walkway runs from Coolock Lane to Castletimon Road. Due to the proposed development of the site it is necessary to extinguish the current right of way in order to keep pedestrian traffic safe and away from the construction traffic during the building of the development. The walkway will be repositioned along the perimeter of the site for the duration of construction and a permanent route which more closely mirrors the current route will pertain on completion of the build.

The current right of way to be extinguished (yellow) and the proposed temporary right of way around the perimetre of the site (red) can be seen on the attached drawing SM-2021-0037
