Safety concerns raised over some cycle lanes in Offaly

Safety issues regarding several cycle lanes in Offaly were raised by a local councillor recently.

Cllr John Carroll pointed out difficulties being experienced with the cycle lane along Moorepark street in Birr. “We have a problem there in Birr along Moorepark street where we are afraid of a major accident where you come out of the turn at Parkrise,” he pointed out.

“There is a turn and a cycle lane and there has been a couple of close incidents and along the Coach Road where we have two lanes,” he remarked before asking whether it was something the local authority officials could examine in the future.
