Reverse the traffic management changes in Sandyford Industrial Estate

In November 2012, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council made a dramatic change to the traffic flow in Sanyford Industrial Estate, introducing new traffic signals, changing junctions and most importantly changing a one-way system on Blackthorn Road to a two way system. The impact has been to increase the traffic congestion in the general Sandyford area with reports of massive increases in journey times for both car drivers and pedestrians. Tens of thousands of people live and work in this area, and these changes have had a dramatically negative impact on their standard of lives due to the increased time it now takes to enter and exit Sandyford Industrial estate. This petition is calling for the council to re-examine carefully what they set out to achieve, and consider reversing the changes in order to alleviate the problems that were introduced.
