Speeding and dangerous driving within the 50kph zone as motorists approach and leave Suncroft village

My second motion at March MD meeting ‘That the council outline a plan to deal with consistent issues with speeding and dangerous driving within the 50kph zone as motorists approach and leave Suncroft village travelling north, impacting most seriously on the two housing estates Hawthorn Wood and the older development at Carna within this zone. While the plan should include low cost works e.g. the erection of high impact signage reminding motorists that they are in a low speed residential area, the council must review all available actions as an urgency given the threat to young families in the area.’

Report: An automated traffic count has been completed on the L3007 from the Hawthorne Estate entrance to Suncroft. The costs for the supply and installation of two advance warning solar powered driver feedback signs is circa €9,000. The issue is under discussion with the Municipal District Engineer.
