Safety Signage at Co Kildare primary school due soon

Signage is urgently needed at  a Co Kildare primary school with a 'serious' traffic problem. Principal of Scoil Bhride Milltown, Joe Hartnett, welcomed the long- awaited announcement that traffic calming measures will take place soon. A traffic warden started employment last month, in a bid to reduce the safety risks, with children crossing the  road from the school. It is anticipated that two new signs with  School Patrol Ahead written on them,  will be placed on the approach to the crossing from either side of the school. Newbridge based councillor,  Fiona  O’Loughlin  and school principal ,  Mr Joe Hartnett  discussed  their  concerns  with KCC Area Engineer,  earlier this week,  in relation to the increase in  heavy goods vehicles, lorries and agricultural vehicles passing through the village.
