Ballyleague residents ‘against speed limit changes’

Meeting to be held next Tuesday

Residents in Ballyleague, who are opposed to proposals from Roscommon County Council to increase speed limits on a busy road near the local national school, will raise their concerns with locally elected representatives and the council at a public meeting in the village next Tuesday.

  Under draft proposals published by the council in the last three weeks, the speed limit for motorists entering the shannonside village is proposed to go up from 50 kilometres per hour to 60 kilometres per hour for a distance of over two kilometres along the busy N63 national secondary route that runs through Ballyleague –and many residents are already opposed to the plan.

  The Ballyleague Village Renewal and Tidy Towns Committee has already spoken to local councillors about their concerns over the proposed changes – especially as the route with the new speed limit passes an already busy primary school – and the issue will now be discussed at the annual general meeting of the local residents and development group in St. Faithleach’s GAA clubhouse on Tuesday, 31st of January at 8.30 pm.

  Other issues up for discussion on the night at the AGM are proposals to install new flowerbeds and landscaping on the Roscommon road into Ballyleague, a new 5-year development plan for the area, design work on an exciting new sculpture for the village centre and new recreational facilities for the banks of the Shannon.

  All concerned local residents and parents of children attending Ballyleague National School are invited to attend.
