Speed ramp to be reinstated at Marian Park, Saurin calls for traffic survey

 Sinn Fein Councillor David Saurin has welcomed a commitment given at last week's Drogheda Borough Council meeting in relation to road safety measures at Marian Park.

“I have recently been contacted by residents regarding the speed of traffic entering the estate from Bottle Lane” Cllr Saurin said.

“So concerned are the residents about the situation that they have organised a petition calling for traffic calming measures to be implemented.”

Saurin raised the issue at the Borough Council meeting. He called for the reinstallation of a speed ramp at the entrance to the estate which had been removed several years ago without any consultation with residents.

Officials gave a commitment that the ramp would be reinstated.

Cllr Saurin said he had also requested that a traffic survey be carried out on this stretch of busy road and that speed limit signage be erected and also that other traffic calming measures be implemented including more speed ramps if necessary.

“I have witnessed for myself, the volume and speed of traffic entering the estate which has become a rat run for some motorists so these safety measures are urgently required if we want to avoid what is evidently an accident waiting to happen.”
