Emergency access to estate

Once again the estate will suffer a “lock down” at the end of each of the Longitude concert nights. The committee share the view of the majority of residents and would prefer if such road closures could be avoided, but to date there has been no viable solution found to this perennial issue. The main concern, access to the estate by emergency services, has at least been provided for in the Garda traffic management plan. As with last year we have been assured that:

Access for Emergency Services to all areas will be maintained during the periods of Road Closures. In the event that an emergency occurs an escort team, consisting of trained Garda Motorcyclists, will be detailed to complete this escort. This is a facility that would not be available on a normal basis and will result in a more timely response for access and egress to Emergency Services personnel and vehicles.
