A county councillor wants more speed detection vans on regional roads in the Graiguecullen/Portarlington Area.

Cllr Tom Mulhall said there is regular accidents at Kilbride Bridge andthe Killanure Road.

“It’s only a matter of time before someone is killed. The only solution is speed detection vans. I know people don’t like them but it would be a good deterrent to slow people down.”

Cllr Aidan Mullins said the accidents on the Killanure road were happening at the one spot.

“It’s more than speed on that road,” he said, adding that the crash barrier needed to be replaced.

Director of services, Kieran Kehoe said the senior engineer visted the site the day before the meeting.
