Review Of Ash Trees On National Roads In Tipperary Currently Underway

310

Tipperary County Council are carrying out a review of ash trees situated close to national Roads that may be affected by Ash dieback disease. The Council are currently surveying the N24 between Monard and Cahir. The section from Monard to Tipperary town is almost complete. This survey work is expected to continue until Thursday June 27th. At times the staff will implement temporary Traffic Management on sections of the road to facilitate  the survey. The contractor will be carrying out the survey between 8am and 6pm. Tipperary County Council Roads Department says the disruption will be minimal and that most drivers will not actually encounter any traffic management.

Councillors had requested such a survey in the summertime as it would be easy to determine the status of the tree due to the condition of the foliage. Landowners may now be advised to remove any dead or dying trees for safety reasons.
