NEW TRAFFIC LAYOUT
To improve the safety of all those using the grounds of Clonaslee Community Centre a new traffic layout is being introduced. A one-way traffic system to be introduced. New road marking, signposts and parking areas will be installed, and we ask everybody who uses the centre to become familiar with these new arrangements. These changes are designed to improve safety and minimise the risk of accident or injury to students, sportspeople, staff and all other users of the Centre.
