Labour Councillor Michelle Hall.
At yesterday’s Drogheda Borough District meeting Councillor Michelle Hall sought an update on the entrance to Termon Abbey which is the scene of huge traffic tail backs at peak times.
“It’s something that I’ve been raising since I was elected and I know other councillors are concerned about the issue also” she said.
She said that, despite her frequent requests, no traffic planning works had been carried out but she noted that ramps have been installed at Beaulieu Village further out the Termonfeckin Road.
“I have been asking for yellow boxes to be installed at the entrance to Termon Abbey and Newtown Meadows for the last year and they’re still not in place yet” she said.

She suggested that now would be a good time to get the work done while the schools are closed which meant that the normal level of traffic was not there.
She said the road is getting busier and busier year on year and while a yellow box was not the full answer it would be a minor thing to ask for.
Council Engineer Mark Johnson said that the situation would be assessed and the appropriate action taken.
