At the recent Killarney Municipal District Meeting, Cllr Donal Grady proposed the following motions:
Cllr Donal Grady: That Killarney Municipal District would resurface the road from the wood line Ulick s cross to the top of the park hill, as this was put on hold for ten years, this is in urgent need of attention.
Reply: Kerry County Council will continue to maintain the road at this location. This road is part of the Kilcummin sewer project and will
be permenently resurfaced when the sewer is constructed.
Cllr. Donal Grady: That we again request the provision of a filter lane from Mission Road exciting onto New Street Lower. This would eliminate the long back-ups which are taking place on Mission Road.
Reply: As per previous reply, Kerry County Council has consulted with the National roads authority in regard to this junction, and while it is agreed that widening of this junction to a two-lane approach would reduce the queuing times during busy periods, it is the opinion of the national roads authority that this would compromise pedestrian safety at this location
and therefore the NRA are not in agreement in reverting to a two lane approach.
Cllr. Donal Grady: request that Kerry County Council would put in place a pedestrian crossing linking the entrance to Lackabane with the Fossa way.
Reply: Kerry County Council are currently in discussions with the NRA about increasing the linkages between the Fossa Way and the N72.
This location is being examined as a potential suitable location.
