The Corkman - - NEWS -

Peo­ple in the vil­lage of Rostel­lan have been ask­ing for road traf­fic man­age­ment since 2009, Sinn Féin Deputy Pat Buck­ley told the Dáil.

“They have been sup­ported by lo­cal vil­lages, the Irv­ing Oil re­fin­ery, Aghada power sta­tion, lo­cal gar­daí and oth­ers,” said Deputy Buck­ley.

“Some 40% of the road ton­nage in Cork county tra­verses the vil­lage, which needs traf­fic calm­ing mea­sures. A re­cent sur­vey, which was car­ried out for 12 hours a day for seven days, showed that 43,796 ve­hi­cles passed through the vil­lage in one week,” he added.

Deputy Buck­ley asked if money was avail­able for traf­fic man­age­ment in the vil­lage and was Cork County Coun­cil draw­ing down funds for this pur­pose.
