Cllr John Joe Fennelly wants traffic calming measures in Abbeyleix, Laois

Traffic calming including a possible extra speed ramp are to be considered for a rural Laois road to keep pedestrians safer from speeding cars.

Cllr John Joe Fennelly has requested extra traffic calming at Rathmoyle in Abbeyleix, in a motion tabled to the February meeting of Portlaoise Municipal District.

“A lot of people walk that road, especially at night. There are large reports of cars speeding,” he said.

Laois County Council will visit the site on the L-67203 road to examine it with a view to installing an extra traffic calming ramp.

The motion was seconded by Cllr Catherine Fitzgerald.
