Traffic calming works to commence at Offaly housing estate

Offaly County Council are to commence traffic calming roadworks in a Portarlington housing estate.

Local Fianna Fail councillor Eddie Fitzpatrick has welcomed the announcement by the area engineer that works will begin on traffic calming measures for St Joseph's Terrace, Portarlington.

"This comes following representations I made to Offaly County Council in relation to a number of accidents in St. Mary's Terrace and St. Joseph's Terrace in Portarlington," Cllr Fitzpatrick said.

"This route through residential streets is being used by motorists accessing the Tullamore road posing a hazard to pedestrians, and in particular children."

The proposed traffic management measures will include ramps and additional road marking and signage.
