The Termonfeckin Road covered in mud from the Lagan Homes site.
Councillor Kevin Callan has asked Louth County Council to enforce planning conditions which require developers to ensure that roads beside building sites are cleaned and maintained throughout construction works.
The Independent Councillors call comes after he received numerous complaints from local residents and motorists on the Termonfeckin Road and the Newfound well area where long stretches of road have been covered in mud from the construction site.
“We had this situation a few months back on another road near another construction site on the Ballymakenny Road” Callan said.
“It is intolerable for local people whose cars get destroyed in muck, but the safety issue is even more serious” he added.

“I have observed for myself the construction traffic on the Termonfeckin Road causing the road to become covered in muck and I am asking the Council to enforce condition of planning which is that roads must be cleaned continuously to stop this type of situation developing where there is a risk to public safety.”
