New Pedestrian Lights for Clondalkin LUAS Users

Minister Frances Fitzgerald has announced that new pedestrian lights are being installed at Monastery Gate and will be switched on in the coming weeks.

“I am delighted to see the pedestrian lights being progressed at Monastery Gate. This site was deemed the safest and most appropriate location for a pedestrian crossing linking Clondalkin to the Red Cow LUAS stop,” explained Fitzgerald.

“The lights are currently being worked on and will be switched on in the coming weeks. This pedestrian crossing will be of huge benefit to Clondalkin residents who use the LUAS and will serve to make their route a safer and easier walk,” continued Fitzgerald.

“Associated roadmarkings will be installed at this junction and even though this type of work is very much dependent on the weather I have been assured by South Dublin County Council that this work will be carried out as soon as possible and the lights are due to be functioning in the coming weeks,” concluded Fitzgerald.
