New lighting, reduced speed limit on way – McDermott



Cllr. Marty McDermott, right, says new lighting and a reduced speed limit are to be put in place at Circular Road/Henry Street (side road) in the New Year.

  Cllr. McDermott recently raised the matter with Roscommon County Council, making the case for a 30 km speed limit and provision of LED lighting at Circular Road/Henry Street (side road) in Roscommon Town.

  “These measures are required in the interest of public safety” Cllr. McDermott (Fianna Fáil) told the Roscommon People.

  “There has been a large increase in the volume of traffic in that area, and instances of speeding. I’ve been advised by the Council that they will proceed with these projects in 2020. I raised this at a Roscommon Municipal District meeting and am grateful to my elected colleagues for their support, and to the Council for its positive response”.

  Cllr. McDermott said that he has also received representations from residents in Mote Park and Lisnamult in relation to concerns over speeding vehicles in those areas. He is raising these concerns with the Council.
