Signage neededfor newroad system
COUNCILLOR Kenneth Flood has called for more signage in and around St Laurence Gate to avoid confusion for motorists.
He said the new system was working well in the main but the one sticking point where there is an issue is at Jim Garry Way where there are often ‘ three cars sitting looking at each other’ as no one is sure who has the right of way.
In addition, he said many people were not aware of the fact that Palace Street is two way until the back of the Laurence Centre and this was causing confusion.
Engineer Pat Finn said the council will examine all the remarks in relation to signage around Laurences Gate and see if there’s anythign that can be done to improve matters.
Meanwhile, Councillor Richie Culhane asked that a wheelchair space be put in place outside the St Vincent de Paul shop on Trinity Street.
‘A lot of older people shop there and it would be a big addition to them,’ he said at the November meeting of the council.
Senior Engineer Pat Finn said he couldn’t promise it would be done straight away but said the council will look into it.
