A new one-way traffic management system will be brought into effect in Nenagh Town Centre from the 11th April 2024 at approximately 11am.  

The scheme is intended to improve vehicular and pedestrian traffic flow through Nenagh town centre via changes to traffic flow, junction controls and street layouts. 

Pearse Street, Mitchel Street, Emmet Place and Kickham Street will change to two-lane one-way streets, with traffic flow on Silver Street and Emmet Place reversed to align with the clockwise direction of the one-way system.  Larger HGVs will be restricted from turning left from Mitchel Street onto Sarsfield Street and will be required to turn right onto Emmet Place.

Traffic lights will be removed at the Market Cross and the mini roundabout and pedestrian barriers will be removed at the Summerhill/Kickham Street junction.  Zebra crossings are to be installed  at key pedestrian desire points and raised tables at several of the crossings are intended to manage traffic speeds.

The bus stop on the eastern side of Kickham Street (outside Rocky’s Bar) will remain, while the bus stop on the western side of Kickham Street will be relocated to Pearse Street (outside Careplus).
