Hope for reopening of Bray – Greystones Cliff walk as contracts signed

Deputy John Brady at barrier on the Bray-Greystones Cliff Walk

Wicklow Sinn Féin TD John Brady has welcomed news that contracts have been signed for works to be carried out on the Bray side of the Cliff Walk to stabilize overhead rocks that are at risk of falling onto the walk. The Cliff Walk was completely closed to the public at the end of October last year following a substantial rock fall.

Deputy Brady said “News that contacts have been signed to allow stabilizing work to commence on the Bray side of the Cliff Walk is welcome. The Cliff Walk was completely closed at the end of October last year following a very serious rock fall onto the path. The Cliff Walk had been partially closed two years ago following a landslide on the Greystones side.”

“The Cliff Walk is an important amenity for locals and tourists, so getting it reopened is really important. I hope that the stabilizing work can begin as soon as possible, this will allow for the reopening of that section of the walk.”

“Its is concerning that people are ignoring the warnings and are climbing over the palisade fencing that has been erected by the council to close off the walk. People are at risk of impaling themselves on the fence or getting injured by falling rocks.  

“Officials from Wicklow County Council are engaged in a process of acquiring land to move the walk away for the section affected by the landslide in 2021. It is a frustratingly slow process and I hope that we will have some positive developments in the near future.”

“With this positive news on getting the work done on the Bray end, there needs to be a major push in getting the entire Cliff Walk reopened as soon as possible.”
