Traffic lights out of action at Main Street / Richmond Street junction in Longford town

Traffic lights are out of order in the centre of Longford town.

Councillor Naoise Ó Cearúil has demanded a full review of the traffic lights at a junction in Maynooth following what he claimed were 'numerous incidents'.

The politician wants immediate action from Kildare Co Council to the issue at the Meadowbrook junction.

The item will be raised at the next local Municipal District Meeting next week. 

Councillor O Cearúil will also request that Pay Parking Bye-Laws for Maynooth are reviewed to allow free parking on
Saturday and to maximise the benefits of the scheme.

Councillor Angela Feeney will also use the meeting to ask the Council to respond to the recommendation made to them to reduce the width of the 4-metre bridge from Limetree Hall Estate into Carton Avenue in Maynooth.

Cllr Feeney also queried about a footpath to be laid between Fitzgerald, Brady, O’Flaherty, Estate Agents and The Square, Maynooth.

She also requested an update on the plans for replacing the rest of the footpath on Main Street?

On another Maynooth-related topic, Councillor Tim Durkan will ask that the Council expedite the provision of an improved cycle lane and footpath on the Celbridge Road in Maynooth.
