New year start for road safety works in Duleek

Meath Co Council has committed to starting work on the junction at the bottom of Station Road/Main Street, Duleek early in the new year.

Cllr McKee who raised the issue recently welcomed the news.

"I am pleased that Meath Co Council have confirmed that work will start early in the new year. I raised this important issue again at our most recent Council meeting. Works will include a new traffic calming table and new traffic lights at the junction which are badly needed.

"These works will form part of an overall Duleek Public Realm Plan which will be developed to improve public infrastructure in the village, improve the environment for local business to flourish and enhance the quality of life for local residents. It will be important that adequate funding is provided to ensure that any agreed Public Realm Plan can be fully funded and that the work is fully carried out.

"The new road safety and traffic calming works are very welcome. Traffic calming is badly needed also on the Station Road, on the Longford Road, the Navan Road and out at Duleek Soccer Club at Carranstown.

“There are just far too many HGV's coming through the village. Long-term, the bypass is critical," concluded Cllr McKee.
