Safety work at Ballyragget Junction
Work has commenced on safety measures at the R694 Finnan, Ballyragget Junction with the LS5852.
This particular turn has proved extremely dangerous due to poor visibility.
A sum of €30K has been allocated for the improvements under the 2018 Safety Improvement Works Scheme.
Cllr. Maurice Shortall says poor visibility at the right hand turn has led to anxiety and fear among locals on what for many is a daily manoeuvre.
"Great credit to the local landowner for his co-operation and also to our Municipal Engineer who has prioritised the junction for improvements." said Cllr. Shortall.
