Question to City Manager               City Council Meeting 04/04/2011

 

Q90.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            Can the Manager provide a breakdown of the various types of Traffic Calming Speed Ramps in use by DCC, the benefits of each type and an estimated total cost of installation for each type.

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
Four general types of traffic calming ramps are currently used by Dublin City Council.

  • 4.5m long ramp and 75mm high - approximate cost €4,000.
  • 10m long ramp and 100mm high - approximate cost €8,000 (used on bus routes).
  • Speed cushions (small ramps with gaps in between) (used on bus routes) approximate cost €2,000 per cushion, 3.5m long and 65mm high.
  • Raised plateau at junction - approximate cost €10,000 to €20,000.

 

The 4.5m ramps are more effective at reducing speeds but are not suitable for bus routes.  The 10m long ramps promote better driver behaviour than speed cushions but can be difficult to locate on a road due to their length.

 

Q91.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            Can the Manager provide details of any advertising campaign undertaken by DCC for the purpose of attracting new members to Council sports facilities in light of the closure of the Total Fitness gymnasiums.

 

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
In partnership with the Institute of Leisure and Amenity Management Ireland Ltd. the City Council, along with other leisure facility providers, has offered to accept members from Total Fitness Clubs.  Dublin City Council has offered a 20% discount special membership rate which will be available until the end of April 2011.  This offer is advertised on the ILAM website and the Whiteflag website and on Facebook, Twitter and Linked in.  The offer is also advertised on the City Council website.

 

 

Q92.    COUNCILLOR CIERAN PERRY
            Can the Manager confirm that DCC will engage a private contractor to open and close the various parks under the control of DCC during the summer months as happened last year.

 

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
The contract with the companies supplying Park Warden Services recommenced in Mid March 2011 and will continue until late October 2011.  The services being delivered in 2011 by this company will be as supplied in 2010.
