Fresh traf­fic fears in Maugher­aboy

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

The Coun­cil has been pressed to pro­vide bet­ter traf­fic man­age­ment at the junc­tion of Maugher­aboy Post Of­fice.

Coun­cil­lor Chris MacManus made the call, and also urged the Coun­cil to pro­vide a foot­path from Beech­lawn Court down to the same junc­tion.

There are two Coun­cil ten­ants with phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties who will have to brave the ex­tra traf­fic cross­ing the road with­out the con­tin­u­ous foot­path, he told the meet­ing.

“The 62 new houses will cause in­creased traf­fic in the long term. There is no traf­fic man­age­ment at Maugher­aboy Post Of­fice. The com­mu­nity have dif­fi­cul­ties en­ter­ing Maugher­aboy at the junc­tion,” he said.

He was sec­onded by Mayor of Sligo Mu­nic­i­pal District Cllr Rosaleen O’Grady: “I think it would be timely to have it as­sessed at this stage.”

Di­rec­tor of Ser­vices Bart­ley Gavin said the Roads Depart­ment will look at the foot­path but an ex­ist­ing farm shed projects onto the line of the foot­path. The Maugher­aboy junc­tion will be as­sessed as part of the new de­vel­op­ment of 62 houses.
