A new speed ramp is due to be installed outside Drumcong NS by the end of October this year.

Leitrim County Council recently conducted a low cost safety survey at the location and found a staggering 85% of road users were breaking the speed limit on that stretch of road.
The council also outlined that local Gardai had evidence of speeding at the location on the Ballinamore- Carrick-on-Shannon road.

The council applied for a grant and were successful, they expect to install the ramp in September or October this year.
