CRUSHEEN IS getting the green light for a number of housing developments but the village “needs a total upgrade” in order to have the infrastructure to match this rise in population.

In June, Woodhaven Development Ltd was granted planning permission for the construction of 42 new houses in Crusheen. They are broken down as 32 three-bedroom properties, four four-bedrooms and six two-bedrooms and all of the properties will be private housing.

Separate developments for 29 homes remain under construction while another 42 houses were recently built in the locality.

A review of existing speed control measures on the Tulla Rd in Crusheen was sought by Cllr Pat Hayes (FF) “to look at alternative ways of controlling traffic at this location and also a plan to upgrade existing road surface and footpaths in this area as they present a very poor image on entering Crusheen village”.

Acting senior executive engineer in the Killaloe Municipal District, Derek Troy confirmed that a review of the existing measures will be completed. The present speed limit at the location is 50km/h. He outlined that Clár funding for safety improvement works nearby at Crusheen National School are nearing completion.

Speaking at the July meeting of the Killaloe MD, Cllr Hayes remarked, “Traffic safety is not promoting a positive image in Crusheen, a section in the village needs a total upgrade and a review. The idea of stopping and giving way is not working”.

He felt the review was “badly needed” and referenced development plans in Crusheen GAA and the surge in housing plans for the area.

“It is a busy road, people down towards Quin direction still to go Galway via this road even with the motorway, they’re still going through Crusheen to go to Galway for work, we all agree it needs a facelift, it is shabby in this day and age,” Cllr Pat Burke (FG) stated.
