The following questions were raised by councillors at the March meeting of Leitrim County Council.

Fianna Fail councillor, Sinead Guckian, asked that priority be given to works on the LS 7430 Annaduff Glebe, under the 2012 Roads Programme of the Council.

In reply she was told that once the Annual Roads Programme is approved by Leitrim County Council a Programme will be drawn up to ensure the delivery of the total Roads Programme in the most efficient manner.

“Factors such as existing road condition, the weather dependency of the planned works, and the proximity of other roads projects in the area will all be taken into account,” noted a spokesperson for the Council.

Taking in Charge estate

Cllr Sean McGowan has sought a progress report on the Council’s move to take in charge the “Ard Na Cuain” Housing estate in Dromod.

A spokesperson for the Council noted they were awaiting the submission by the Developer of appropriate wayleaves over infrastructural works within the development.

“Upon receipt of same the Council will proceed with the taking in charge process,” added the spokesperson.

New sign

A new directional sign for Manorhamilton will be put in place at the R280 Park T Junction following a request by Cllr Siobhan McGloin.

Markings to highlight speed ramp

Cllr Paddy O’Rourke has asked that fluorescent markings be provided to indicate the presence of a speed ramp outside Carrigallen NS.

“Despite the existing signage many motorists are not aware of it until they are close to it,” he said.

He was told that these road markings are on the Council’s programme of works.

“Unfortunately the recent weather did not lend itself to applying these markings. The advance warning signs of the ramps will be maintained until we can place the appropriate ramp markings,” noted Director of Services, Infrastructure, John McGuinness.
