Councillor Sinead Guckian asked at the September meeting of Leitrim County Council to request the NRA to drop the existing curb on the traffic island on the centre of the N4, opposite Annaduff Church.

She said “The current level of the “stepped” kerb on the island is too high to accommodate the provision of safe crossing for those with pushchairs or wheelchair users or cyclists.”

Cllr Guckian was told the concerns outlined will be referred to the National Roads Authority who are responsible for the maintenance of Traffic Calming Schemes.

The entrance to Lis Cara Housing Estate, Carrick-on-Shannon which was proposed by Cllr Gerry Reynolds for traffic calming measures will also be referred to the NRA. The council told the Carrick Fine Gael Councillor that the potholes at the entrance remain the responsibility of the developer.
