FAO MEATH COUNTY COUNCIL To whom it may concern,
We the undersigned wish to express our deep concern regarding the absence of a public footpath between the Nine Mile Stone Roundabout and the top of Harlockstown Lane. As this stretch of road contains some very dangerous bends, which are extremely hazardous for pedestrians, we consider that the lack of a footpath contravenes current legislation in the matter of Public Health and Safety. The fact that there is no footpath is also a discouragement to the use of public transport as it is a serious deterrent for anyone contemplating walking to or from the bus stops on the N2. Of course attempting this journey after dark is dangerous in the extreme. The exponential increase in traffic in recent years on the Ratoath Road makes the rectifying of the present dangerous situation a matter of extreme urgency. We therefore consider it essential that the Traffic Dept. of Meath Co. Council give immediate priority to the provision of a public footpath in order to prevent the occurrence of a serious accident.
