Reply: Potholes at this location have been repaired.

 

6.9 Cllr. Ken Glynn: To ask Mullingar Municipal District to bring forward proposals to improve road safety at Newtown, as sight distance is proving difficult for local residents at this location.

 

Reply: Sightlines from private properties are a matter for the householder to resolve.  There are no plans or funding for ramps at this location.

 

Motions:

 

8.5 Cllr. Ken Glynn: To call on Mullingar Municipal District to contact Iarnrod Eireann with a view to closing off the unofficial opening to their property across from the entrance to Newbrook Grove, as this location is being used as a dumping ground and for anti social behaviour.

 

Reply: No Reply.

 

8.6 Cllr. Ken Glynn: To call on Mullingar Municipal District to review road safety at both pedestrian crossings at the immediate sides of the hospital roundabout.

 

Reply: Improvements were carried out to both pedestrian crossings adjacent to the hospital in 2015. The pedestrian crossing south of the roundabout was moved 5m further away from the roundabout. Advance warning signs and belisha beacons for both of the zebra crossings were renewed/improved in 2015. A Stage 3 Road Safety Audit was carried out in April 2016 on the completed improvement works.
