Laois County Council to fix crossing where drivers only see pedestrians at its midpoint

Call for new pedestrian crossing in Ballinamore

Laois County Council is to inspect and rectify any issues with a pedestrian crossing in Stradbally. 

Cllr PJ Kelly tabled a motion asking: “That Laois County Council make safer the pedestrian crossing at the library in Stradbally as the view for traffic from the Timahoe side is obscured by the railings and a sign inside the railings”

In a written response to the motion, A/Senior Executive Engineer Farhan Nasiem said “Road Design will review issues on this pedestrian crossing and rectify it.”

Cllr Kelly said “you have to go to the middle of the road before an oncoming car can see you properly. It is no-one’s fault, it is just the way the pedestrian crossing is positioned.”

The matter was discussed at a recent meeting of the Portarlington Graiguecullen Municipal District.
