MMRA are delighted to report that a new rain gully was installed this week by DLRCC at the pedestrian path junction of South Avenue and Kilmacud Road Lower. After many years of flooding at this section of the footpath, the new gully will hopefully help resolve the issue.
Update 21/12/20 – Unfortunately the surface water issue has not been resolved by the new gully. MMRA have reported this to DLRCC and are pending an update. ( CRM 169459)
MMRA are in regular contact with DLRCC regarding the ongoing flooding in bad weather at N11/Trees Road Lower/Greygates and N11/The Rise. Cllr Deirdre Donnelly also raised this issue a council meeting 7/12/20. We have been assured that these issues will be addressed.
Update as of December 7, 2020:
- N11/The Rise: DLRCC Maintenance will assess the feasibility of providing additional side entry gullies and/or new drainage at this location to lessen the impact of debris blocking the existing road drainage. An extra ‘side inlet gully’ will be installed at this location in the New Year as soon as the temporary traffic lights are off the road. Side inlet gullies have less maintenance issues. The Tarmac Contractor is arriving on December 17th to finish cycle lanes. This will allow the extensive quantity of red barriers to be removed before Christmas.
- N11/Lower Trees Road/Greygates: Remedial drainage work was carried out in recent years on the N11 side of this junction and this drainage is functioning adequately. Road Maintenance will assess the feasibility of providing additional side entry gulley’s at this location to lessen the impact of debris blocking the existing road drainage.
In the meantime, our recent kerbside leaf sweep was a great community effort to keep our rain gullies clear of debris as we come into the wet winter weather. 25 tones of leaves were collected in MMRA-sponsored Panda Skip Bags! Thank you to everyone who helped on the day. It really made a difference.
