Motorists trying to get to McDonalds in Newbridge are getting stuck in traffic, according to a politician. Councillor Mark Lynch said tailbacks on the Moorefield Road outside the town are also affecting shoppers heading to the local Tesco store. Cllr Lynch asked: "Can the Council look into the traffic backlogs at the lights at the McDonalds/Tesco traffic light junction in Newbridge? "Backlogs from Ballymany in the mornings and on weekends are causing huge disruption and action needs to be taken at this junction for Newbridge to continue as a main shopping town with ease of access into the town for residents and shoppers." The politician will be raising the issue at the Kildare-Newbridge Municipal District meeting in Aras Chill Dara in Naas on Friday.
