Call to rectify incorrect road markings

Leitrim County Council will raise concerns with the NRA about incorrect road markings on the approach to the last roundabout in the direction of Longford, on the Dromod-Roosky bypass.

Leitrim County Council will raise concerns with the NRA about incorrect road markings on the approach to the last roundabout in the direction of Longford, on the Dromod-Roosky bypass.

Cllr Sinead Guckian raised concerns about the markings stating that vehicles approaching this roundabout “travelling towards Longford are advised, by road markings on entrance to the roundabout, that the left lane is for cars turning left and the right lane is for cars turning left or right.

“However, as there is only one lane off the roundabout onto the Longford N4 road, vehicles in the right lane should not be advised by the road markings that they can make a left turn also, as there is no markings to allow them to merge with the left lane,” she said.

Although noting the roundabout in question is in Co Longford, a spokesperson for Leitrim’s Local Authority said they would “raise the matter again with the NRA and Longford County Council and will revert to the Councillor with the outcomes of this discussion.”
