Port hedges are road safety hazard

Hedges will be cut at the Lea Road / bog road, Portarlington to improve safety for traffic coming from Kilmullen.

So committed Laois County Council area engineer Philip McVeigh at the Portarlington Graiguecullen area meeting. Cllr Aidan Mullins asked for action because he claimed drivers are forced into the middle of the road to check for traffic because of hedges. He said the hedges had to be managed.
