Finglas Road

In recent years Dublin City Council has undertaken work to improve the appearance of the Finglas Road so that it complements the worldclass Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.  The planting of trees and re-organisation of parking by Dublin City Council has contributed to a better appearance and easier access for visitors to the graveyard and museum.  Following my previous requests Dublin Bus has recently provided a bus shelter for passengers waiting for a bus in-bound to the city center.  I have also raised the condition of the cycle path on the Finglas Road from St Philomenas road to Glasnevin Industrial estate with DCC and asked that the cycle route be resurfaced.  Unfortunately Dublin City Council has advised me that while they accept that the asphalt on the outbound cycle-track is peeling they do not deem it to require attention at this point.  I will continue to follow-up on this issue and try to have it included in future works programmes for the area.  Mary
