A local councillor in north Kildare has called on the council to put collapsing bollards at the entrance to a wooded area to prevent thugs from bringing stolen cars into the area and burning them out.

Cllr Kevin Byrne raised the issue at a meeting of the Celbridge-Leixlip Municipal District, stating that either collapsing bollards or alternative measures would be need to prevent the burning out of stolen cars and anti-social behaviour in general.

"Can the council examine the possibility of placing collapsing bollards on the road at (details supplied) in Castletown (wooded area), or alternative measures be put in place if it is a public road to prevent stolen cars being burnt out and general anti-social behaviour?", stated Cllr Byrne.

The council responding by stating that the Municipal District Engineer will investigate the options available at this location, but 'it is important to note that there has to be access to the property'.
