Nash calls for better enforcement of parking by-laws

The coah bay at Laurence Street was only partially blocked this afternoon but still enough to deter a coach driver from stopping.

Drogheda losing out on business as cars take over coach bays

Senator Ged Nash has called for better enforcement of road traffic and parking by-laws because, he says, Drogheda is losing coach loads of tourists every week as cars “seem to be allowed to take over coach bays with complete impunity.”

“Not for the first time have I been contacted recently by coach operators who tell me that they will not come to Drogheda because the designated bus bays are constantly clogged up with cars” he explained.

“The bus bays at Laurence’s Street are more often than not occupied by cars and on Sundays in particular it is impossible for buses to allow tourists to disembark at St. Peter’s as the bay there is constantly loaded with cars.

“Drogheda is losing out on business as coach companies avoid the town due to these ongoing parking issues.

“The authorities need to up their game and clamp down on private vehicle treating these designated bus bays as their own.”
