Council Hears Three Motions On Traffic Calming Measures For Parts Of West Tipp

236

Three motions at yesterday’s Tipperary Cashel  Municipal District Meeting sought council action in respect of traffic calming  measures.  

Cllr Declan Burgess sought  traffic calming and improvement works for Knockavilla and Clonoulty villages.

The council response  in respect of Knockavilla is that while it remains a prime  concern funding  has not been secured for works which are designed and ready for construction.

In respect of Clonoulty, the council response is that a speed survey was carried out in the centre of Clonoulty in 2023 and this did not identify a speeding issue.

In 2023 an application for funding was submitted to the National Transport Authority under the Active Travel Programme to install a footpath to the GAA field but the project was unsuccessful.

The council is to continue to seek funding for the footpath as it believes it would have a traffic calming effect. 

Cllrs Anne Marie Ryan and Tony Black asked that the council carry out a speed survey on Rosanna Road, Tipperary town, paying particular attention to the stretch of road near to Rosanna Close and Roselawn and, if justified, that traffic calming measures be delivered. The council agreed to carry out the speed survey in the very near future.
