Mayor of Drogheda, Paul Bell.
The Mayor of Drogheda, Councillor Paul Bell, has commended Louth County Council for installing speed ramps in Marian Park, St Finian’s Park and Ballsgrove which he campaigned to have included in the Council’s 2019 budget.
“Super progress has been made over the past four weeks with speed ramps installed in Marian Park, St Finian’s Park and Ballsgrove” he said.
“The speed ramps cost 3,000.00 Euros per unit which is a substantial amount” he said. “Unfortunately, due to this cost factor, five ramps in Ballsgrove will not be completed until January or February 2020. However four ramps have been fully reinstated on the entrance to the estate which is most welcome.”
Bell also confirmed that funding which he secured for Knockbrack Downs remains ring fenced and works on low cost road safety measure will commence in the coming weeks. The same contractor will also be installing safety measure on Lynch’s Cross at the junction of Cement Road and Upper Mell.

“This is a most welcome development and will benefit all road users in both areas” he said.
Mayor Bell also called for more attention to road markings in and around Drogheda in particular road markings that have been almost totally erased on Donore Road which is one of the busiest roads in the town.
