No funds for Fr Brown Rd island

Even though Laois County Council agree that an upgrade of the traffic islands on Fr Brown Road in Portlaoise is needed, there is no funding available to improve safety at this location.

That was the reply to a motion put forward by Cllr Catherine Fitzgerald at County Hall last week.

“I’m surprised there are not more accidents there, the bollards are broken,” she said, adding that bollards outside the library in Lyster Square are also very dangerous.
