Quotations are to be sourced for the potential of installing VMS signs on the Ennis and Lahinch roads to Ennistymon.
It follows a request from Cllr Shane Talty (FF) to secure the driver feedback signs. “We are all guilty of speeding, one of them is a particular haunt for the GoSafe Van, drivers might learn their lesson from the sign rather than incurring an €80 fine,” the postmaster commented.
A suitable funding source will need to be identified to proceed with the installation, senior executive engineer Enda MacNamara flagged.
Meanwhile, Cllr Talty also requested the local authority to rise the road on the south side of the bridge at Grey Rock in Lisdoonvarna. “This Bridge regularly floods, and the road becomes impassable. If the dip is risen it will divert floods back towards adding lands,” he stated. He believed the work required was modest, “a couple of loads of stone will solve it”.
MacNamara in response said that the West Clare Municipal District Office would investigate “the issues associated with flooding at this location and determine what options are available to ensure water is suitably diverted off the road”.
Both proposals were seconded by Cllr Cillian Murphy (FF).
