SPEEDING in Bramble Lane in Ennis is to be investigated.
Speaking at Tuesday’s meeting of the Ennis Municipal District, Cllr Mary Howard (FG) said she had received numerous representations on speeding within Bramble Lane. She requested that speed bumps or another traffic calming measure be introduced “in the cul de sac area where houses 47 through to 81 are located”.
Acting senior executive engineer, Paddy Tiernan said the issue would be investigated by staff within the Ennis MD. “If justified (we) will propose a suitable traffic calming measure for this area. We wish to advise that Section 38 approval is required for any proposed traffic calming measure. A funding source will also have to be identified for the scheme”.
Cllr Howard detailed that she has told residents there will be a “noise element” if rumble strips or speed bumps are introduced. “I look forward to there being a positive result and so do the residents, a lot of them have young children”.
Her proposal was seconded by Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy (FF).
