Nugent calls for action on scaffolding and neglected bus stop at Dublin Road

The ugly and litter-strewn scaffolding atthe bus stop at the bottom of the Dublin Road. 

“With its fine architecture and bustling streets, Drogheda is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful towns in Ireland. However, there is one spot in particular that has been causing quite a stir amongst the townspeople - the bus stop at the bottom of Dublin Rd, opposite St. Mary's Church” says local election candidate Peter James Nugent.

“What was once a convenient and practical place for commuters to catch their buses has now become an eyesore, with scaffolding erected and rampant littering” he added.

“As a resident of this charming town, I can't help but feel frustrated and disappointed every time I pass by this neglected bus stop” he says.

“The scaffolding, which has been up for quite some time now, has visibly deteriorated and has clearly outlived its purpose. It not only blocks the view of the beautiful church but also poses a safety hazard to pedestrians passing by.

“What's worse is that this scaffold has become a place for people to dump their trash, turning it into a makeshift bin. It begs the question - why has the council allowed this to go on for so long?

“As the local governing body, it is their responsibility to ensure that public spaces are well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing. The bus stop at the bottom of Dublin Rd is the first thing visitors see when they enter the town, and it does not paint a positive image.

“Furthermore, the lack of action against the owners of the scaffold raises concerns about the level of accountability in our town. It is not fair that the people of Drogheda have to put up with such a glaring eyesore when it could have been dealt with in a timely and efficient manner.”

Mr Nugent said that first impressions matter and he is urging the council to take swift action in this matter.

“It is time for the owners of the scaffold to be held accountable and for it to be taken down. The council should also implement measures to ensure that this situation does not occur again.”
