Further detail of traffic monitoring will be required to determine if increased traffic calming measures can be installed at a busy Clarecastle estate.
Officials in the Ennis Municipal District have been examining the current traffic calming measures at three different locations on the main access road to Creggaun na Hilla Estate.
Local representative, Cllr Paul Murphy (FG) had proposed that a speed survey be completed at the location as he appealed for more traffic calming measures approaching the estate.
Speaking at a recent meeting of the Ennis MD, Cllr Murphy acknowledged that residents viewed it as a distributor road as he asked the local authority to implement increased traffic calming measures in the area. His request was seconded by Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy (FF).
Senior executive engineer, Eamon O’Dea outlined that the percentile speed under 50km/h was at 85 percent following their examinations. He stated that the average speed was around 45km/h with some maximum speeds above the limit “which is to be expected”.
