Councillors appoint members of S2S Joint Committee -Feb 2015

Councillors of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Dublin City Council have set up a Joint Committee to promote the S2S project. 

On their own initiative, the Councillors have completed the necessary procedures to establish a joint committee to co-ordinate their actions in support of the project. The move came with the support of all of the main political parties. The purpose of the committee is to co-ordinate the response of the Councillors to the new feasibility study of the project that is being undertaken on behalf of the National Transport Authority. The study is focussed on the missing section of the Sutton to Sandycove Promenade and Cycleway between Sandymount and Seapoint. It is expected that a draft report will be published for public consultation in March 2015.

The membership of the joint committee are as follows:

The Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown members are:

Deirdre Donnelly              (Independent – Stillorgan)

Kate Feeney                      (Fianna Fáil – Blackrock)

Melissa Halpin                   (People before Profit – Dún Laoghaire)

Deirdre Kingston                (Labour – Blackrock)

Ossian Smyth                     (Green Party – Dún Laoghaire)

Barry Ward                         (Fine Gael – Blackrock)

The Dublin City members are:

Kieran Binchy                     (Fine Gael – Pembroke South-Dock)

Claire Byrne                        (Green Party  – Pembroke South-Dock)

Mannix Flynn                     (Independent  – Pembroke South-Dock)

Jane Horgan-Jones          (Labour – Clontarf)

Frank Kennedy                 (Fianna Fáil – Pembroke South-Dock)

The action by the Councillors is clear evidence of the strong support that continues to exist in the main political parties. It is to be hoped that members of the community who support this great project will indicate that to the Councillors.
