Fianna Fáil Councillor Marty McDermott has highlighted safety concerns on the Racecourse Road at the junction of Corrib Oil, Horan’s restaurant, and the Paddocks housing estate, having been approached by local residents about the problem.
“I have requested that Roscommon County Council send a letter to the (TII) Transport Infrastructure Ireland,” Cllr. McDermott said.
“I did suggest that driver feedback signs be erected to slow the speeding traffic approaching Roscommon town.
“I have been approached by concerned residents in the area and I believe these measures would help the situation. There have been several serious accidents recently at this junction,” he concluded.
