A pedestrianisation trial in Malahide is to end next month.

Fingal County Council says New Street will re-open to vehicular traffic with a temporary one-way system for a number of months, to be followed by a public consultation.

Members of a local campaign group 'Save Malahide Village' which opposed the pedestrianisation say they are glad that the council is re-opening the street and that they will conduct a public consultation.

Shop Malahide co-founder Áine McCabe says: "We have campaigned very hard over the last eleven weeks to get Fingal County Council to listen to local concerns.

"We are not satisfied that full pedestrianisation of New Street is still a possibility and we will continue to fight to keep the road open and for a two-way solution. That said, we are glad that the council are re-opening the street and that they will conduct a public consultation. We are asking local residents and businesses to have their voices heard on this issue by calling and emailing their councillors."

One-way

Fingal County Council says: "The scheme will then be amended to provide a temporary one-way traffic system from The Diamond to the Green/Malahide Marina, which will come into effect in October.

"This will allow for continued use of the public street space for pedestrians, cyclists and will facilitate additional retail space on the street for businesses and their customers to utilise. It will then revert to a full pedestrian zone between Spring and Autumn."
