Disability sign would make woman feel safe in Laois town

Signs would make a woman who uses a wheelchair feel safe when she is out with her husband, according to Cllr John King.

The Fine Gael councillor tabled a motion at a recent meeting with Laois County Council calling for two wheelchair signs at Ballyedmond road Rathdowney to provide safety for a wheelchair user living nearby.

“Her husband takes our out in the wheelchair. She says that if the signs went up it would make her feel safe. Signs help,” said Cllr King. 

Mr. Edmond Kenny, District Engineer, said the Council would arrange to meet the Cllr King to review the signage requirements in this area.

Cllr King thanked the engineer for the commitment given at the December meeting of the Borris-in-Ossory Mountmellick Municipal District.
