I have written to two local politicians regarding NOT having access to the bridge if you are from East Wall....
No joy yet.....
It's really not fair.... there is a fabulous new piece of infrastructure that a whole community is excluded from using.
Aran,It is sadly symptomatic of where this country stands that you and many others have to resort to posts such as this.
It now appears that this structure was primarily intended as a Civic Artistic Feature rather than a piece of functional traffic infrastructure.
I`m uncertain as to whether EU assistance was availed of for the project but if so,perhaps some wider pressure could be applied to whomever
is in actual control of the thing to make it available for its intended traffic purposes.
If not then the best option would appear to be setting the bridge to permanently open which would at least remove the entrapment feature whereby motorists are lured into a law-breaking situation.
As Markpb points out....
If I remember correctly, the EIS and planning permission (from ABP) for the bridge stipulated the turning restrictions so it's not up to DCC to overturn them.
.....we are already in classic Irish Administrative mode of having a plethora of rersponsible agencies with nobody actually
having any functional control at all.........a bit like the Country as a whole really...
