The Knockagh Roundabout on the Clonmel side of Cahir was the topic of discussion at yesterday’s Municipal District meeting following another spate of collisions involving single vehicles. The quality of the road surface at the roundabout is to be raised with Transport Infrastructure Ireland as a priority item at a meeting on November 3rd.
Cllr Andy Moloney raised the issue saying three vehicles had been damaged in three separate incidents over the last 10 days. In some cases the vehicles were written off due to the extent of the damage. In addition, the councillor says the risk of serious injuries or fatalities exists as cars bounce off barriers and into the path of oncoming traffic.
Cllr Moloney wants immediate council engagement with TII and has asked for data as to the number and nature of incidents at the roundabout and wants an anti-skid surface put on this particular stretch of roadway. The council is to start resurfacing the road on Friday October 28th and drivers will be advised of the roadworks and traffic management during the works as soon as possible.
