Water pipes seem to be broken under this streach of the Marlton Road
We have tested this water and there is no chlorine present so it must be surface water coming up through the road.
This often happens where the land is higher than the road.
Thanks again for letting us know as it is always worth checking.

Dear sir or Madam
I wish to draw your attention to the water pipe breakages on the Marlton road
Please inform the relevant department,
Hoping this will bring about the speedy repair and help conserve this precious resource!

Wicklow County Council has been given €850,000 to maintain its roads in 2010. With three weeks gone in the year and 49 weeks to go, I estimate that between €500,000 and €600,000 of that annual fund has been spent already. One of today’s newspapers reported that approximately €150 million – I imagine that was an educated guess – is needed to repair the damage done to this country’s roads in recent times. That equates to an average of approximately €4 million for each affected local authority. It is encouraging that the Minister of State from the capital city is present in the Chamber. It seems that his senior colleague, the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, who represents a neighbouring constituency, did not take this crisis seriously until it started to affect the city. As my colleagues have said, road infrastructure is the key to road safety. It is also the key to attracting investment, business and tourism. It is right that the road from the hotel in Glendalough to the upper lake car park was repaired last Sunday to make the road passable. However, another section of road not too far away, which is used for access by a milk lorry, was not repaired. If something positive is to come out of all of this, it is that local employment will have to be created as money is spent locally to repair our roads. If this is not addressed, we will have no road infrastructure in 12 months’ time.
Nice one Andrew, However I would argue that the roads in the town’s would need to be given priority as the car repair business is booming and workers cannot afford the constant repairs .This week alone I had to fork out 550 Euros for wheel Barings and the garage man tells me it was because of the various pot holes in and around the Abby street and Marlton road junction in Wicklow Town
Collecting my children from school is lethal as the potholes are getting bigger and bigger (near the Wicklow Montessori school) also outside the Abby National school
The whole road needs to be urgently resurfaced (Dublin Road & Abby Road ,Wicklow Town)
This latest attempt to bypass earlier supreme court’s judgment on this matter is an abuse of the process of the court and no ordinary member of the public could have even dreamed of getting away with this typical stroke,
that could have being dreamed up in the back rooms of the Fiannia Fall mafia ridden lenster house!
Since Mr. Liam Carroll has now got the right decision (the one he wants) from the courts there is now a good chance that we the taxpayers in the country will have to foot the bill for his debts!
there has never being a better example of one law for the rich in this country and one law for the poor ,the people that have lost their homes during this week and all that will lose their homes in the months to come
We the ordinary people must not let this corrupt system walk all over us
This decision makes a mockery of the rule of law and questions the whole notion of equality within the Irish legal system, and the Irish regulation of its financial system!
It is no better that a binNAMA republic!

Local Wicklow Business need your support !
In the current climate all around the country the local authorities muss become more user friendly and business friendly
People putting their money down to create business activity must be helped and not hindered
Enterprise is the way forward and the penal rates must now be looked at again in fact I maintain that there is an onus now on the local authorities to refund local business up to 50 %
As business are struggling to meet their costs and cannot compete with the large shopping centres like Dumdum
We need to hold on to local commerce and taxing them out of existence is not the way forward
A bit of common sense is called for Ladies and Gentleman!
