Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

LOUTH County Coun­cil are ex­plor­ing the pos­si­biltiy of in­stalling a bus stop in Tullyallen and have had pre­lim­i­nary talks with Bus Eire­ann in re­la­tion to this, it has been re­vealed.

The is­sue was raised in a no­tice of mo­tion at the Oc­to­ber meet­ing of Drogheda Mu­nic­i­pal District by Coun­cil­lor Tommy Byrne who asked that the coun­cil work with the NRA and Bus Eire­ann to pro­vide a bus shel­ter and seat op­posi­tie the en­trance to Lavin Park Hous­ing Es­tate in Tullyallen in the in­ter­est of pub­lic safety, es­pes­cially for the el­derly and young fam­i­lies us­ing this es­sen­tial bus ser­vice.

Louth County Coun­cil said it has had some pre­lim­i­nary dis­cus­sions with Bus Eire­ann who have con­firmed that this lo­ca­tion is used as a bus stop.

The stop is not an of­fi­cial stop which meets Na­tional Trans­port Au­thor­ity stan­dards and said it is likely the lands will need to be ac­quired in or­der to meet th­ese stan­dards.

‘ There is no pro­vi­sion in the cur­rent bud­get to carry out any works here but if a fund­ing source is iden­ti­fied the mat­ter could be put for­ward for con­sid­er­a­tion when next year’s road­works pro­gramme is be­ing pre­pared,’ said a spokesper­son.

The cam­paign is on for a new bus shel­ter in Tullyallen.
