Sig­nage need­ed­for newroad sys­tem

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

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.
