Stop skirt­ing ring road is­sue

Irish Daily Mirror - - COMMENT -

THOSE who use the M50 will be well aware it is the scene of up to 4,500 in­ci­dents in a two-year pe­riod.

Over-re­liance on the mo­tor­way has seen the level of ve­hi­cles us­ing it con­tinue to rise – lead­ing to more crashes, blown tyres and break­downs, traf­fic jams and de­lays. Per­haps it’s time for the Govern­ment to start look­ing at ways to al­le­vi­ate the pres­sure on the coun­try’s main road­way, with just one in­ci­dent hav­ing the po­ten­tial to cause hours of de­lays. The M50 has been un­der too much stress as it is, ac­tion should be taken be­fore it reaches cri­sis point.
