Anger mounts over yel­low box dilemma

Bray People - - Council Report -

MEM­BERS OF Bray Town Coun­cil were left an­gered by the re­sponse given by the town en­gi­neer to two mo­tions.

The two mo­tions re­quested that yel­low boxes be put in place at two sep­a­rate junc­tions on the Ve­vay Road. Coun­cil­lor Bríd Collins pro­posed the mo­tion that a yel­low box be put in place at the junc­tion of Seacrest Road.

‘I don’t un­der­stand what the prob­lem is here be­cause there was al­ready a yel­low box put there but it has faded and for the en­gi­neer to say that it isn’t war­ranted is wrong. I’m ask­ing the en­gi­neer to re­visit this and to come back to me as soon as pos­si­ble,’ re­sponded Cllr Collins.

Coun­cil­lors Caro­line Bur­rell and Steve Matthews pro­posed a sim­i­lar mo­tion for a yel­low box to be put out­side the Charn­wood es­tate to fa­cil­i­tate the clinic there. The re­sponse from the town en­gi­neer was the same, that there is a con­stant queue of traf­fic on the Ve­vay Road and so a yel­low box is not war­ranted.

‘This is very dis­ap­point­ing and if it is the case that there is a con­stant queue of traf­fic then we should be looking at a traf­fic man­age­ment plan,’ said Cllr Bur­rell.
