Greens demand firm action over damage to Howth tramway

Green Councillor David Healy welcomed the proposals to erect barriers to prevent unauthorised access to the Howth tramway.  

Since September, the tramway has been turned to muck by a builder using it to gain access to a construction site.

Cllr. Healy today showed photos of the damage done to the tramway at the Area Cttee meeting in Baldoyle commenting:

“ The Council must ensure that those responsible pay for the repair of the damage to the tramway, which is a treasured amenity for Howth residents and visitors alike.  The action of the builder in simply digging up and throwing aside the bollard which prevented him driving his digger on the tramway is shocking.  It is disgraceful that we now have to spend public money to put up barriers to deal with this anti-social attitude to public space.”
