Warning needed for humps and dips on boggy but busy road in Laois

Signs to warn people about bumps and hollows will be installed on a road that traverses a bog from Trumera to Mountrath.

Cllr James Kelly told council officials that signs and markings are needed on a stretch of the busy R430. He highlighted a stretch from the M7 bridge at Trumera to Gilman’s Corner, Mountrath.

“There are 3kms there with a lot of bumps and hollows. The surface is good but warning signs would be a lot of help motorists,” he said.

He said that Laois County Council will upgrade signs and road markings.
