Naas schoolkids and their parents are set to get a safe crossing point on Sallins Road. Kildare County Council engineers have confirmed to Cllr James Lawless that they want developers to build a pedestrian crossing between Oldtown Demesne and the Morell residential area. Cllr Lawless had previously called for a lollipop lady to help schoolkids cross the busy Sallins Road in Naas. The Fianna Fail representative said: "It has now been confirmed to me by Council engineering staff that the next phase of development of Oldtown Demesne will include a planning condition requiring the developer to construct a pedestrian crossing between there and Morell. "This should provide a safer crossing point for parents and children across the busy road."   Cllr Lawless said said worried parents had raised concerns about the danger of passing traffic to school kids.
