Reconfiguration options at Round-O junction to be examined

The reconfiguration of the existing junction at the Round-O junction in Navan will be examined as part of the new Flowerhill Cycle/Pedestrian Scheme.

At a meeting of Navan Municipal Council last week Cllr Francis Deane asked if Meath County Council had any plans to erect public lighting at the pedestrian crossing on Beaufort Road as vehicles approach from Navan town.

He was told the Council had appointed consultants to carry out preliminary design works on the Flowerhill Cycle/Pedestrian Scheme and as part of this scheme, the reconfiguration of the existing arrangements at the Round-O junction would be examined. He was told it was intended that facilities to cater for vulnerable road users, including improved levels of public lighting would be incorporated into the overall design for all legs of the junction.

Cllr Deane also proposed that Meath County Council erect a safety overhead barrier at entrance to Ardmulchan cemetery similar to the one in place at Spicers carpark, Athlumney Road.”

He was told the Environment Department will examine the practicalities of providing such a barrier, as a barrier was previously in place at this location.
