The Cathaoirleach of the South Drogheda-East Meath Municipal District, Cllr Stephen McKee, is asking Meath County Council to look at alternative traffic-calming options following the decision not to proceed with a proposed modular chicane through the estate.
‘Following a high number of submissions received by Meath County Council from Millmount Abbey residents objecting to the proposed chicane along the main Avenue through the estate, the Council have taken a decision not to proceed with the installation.
The majority of the submissions received requested that tabletop ramps be provided instead” McKee stated.

“I would like to thank residents and in particular, Millmount Abbey Residents’ Association, for being proactive and encouraging residents to have their say” he continued. “The voices of the residents have been very much heard.
“I made my own submission in support of residents where I highlighted concerns about the prospect of a Chicane and I suggested that other, more suitable measures be taken such as ramps and/or speed tables along the Avenue.
“I am asking the Council to now look at these alternative options.”
