Moves on to create dedicated scrambler track in Clondalkin

FORMATIVE steps are being taken to establish a dedicated motocross and scrambler track in Clondalkin.

After seeing a similar type of track operate to good effect in Blanchardstown, People Before Profit councillor Gino Kenny, believes it could help improve an issue to the fore in Dublin 22.

“A lot of young people and adults like bikes, and it is very popular in Clondalkin for some reason,” said Deputy Kenny.

“It’s an issue I’ve been trying to raise a few times. People mightn’t necessarily want to use their bikes in a confined space, but the track in Blanchardstown has helped to address the issue, and we’re trying to do something similar in Clondalkin.”

There was a public meeting in Bawnogue Community Centre on Monday night, but another public meeting will take place in early November.

Deputy Kenny continued: “I’m trying to gather motorcross enthusiasts and supporters together. The aim of the group would be to then lobby South Dublin County Council and other civic bodies to explore the possibilities of a facility in the Clondalkin area.

“It’s a bit like the Clondalkin Equine Club – if you get good people involved it will work really well. We hope to arrange a visit to the MotoX track in Blanchardstown soon to see how their club was successful in forming a club and building built track in the area.”

Anyone interested in supporting the plans, can contact Deputy Gino Kenny at 085 7211574.
