THERE has been a number of near misses at Clonadacasey junction according to Sinn Fein Cllr Alan Hand who called on Laois County Council to carry out improvement works there.

Cllr Hand suggested at the December meeting of Portlaoise Electoral Area committee that a right turning lane should be installed at the junction if there was sufficient room and that there should also be reflective strips on the road helping to identify the junction. “Motorists using the junction currently risk being rear-ended.”
