Dangerous speeding traffic on Mohill approach

The issue of speeding coming in Mohill has been raised

The issue of speeding traffic coming into Mohill from the Carrick-on-Shannon side was once again raised at the local municipal district meeting.
Cathaoirleach, Cllr Enda Stenson said they were promised a raised pedestrian crossing on the R201 at the entrance to Mohill. He also said the junction at the exit/entrance to old Treanmore is extremely dangerous and needs proper road markings and signage.
He said there is nothing to slow down traffic in that area and vehicles going in and coming out of that junction find it “virtually impossible to see.”
The council replied that a commitment was given to construct a raised ramp at the pedestrian crossing at that location. This will be carried out in February when the contractor is carrying out similar works in Rooskey and Dromod. The junction itself has been placed in a low cost safety scheme.
Cllrs Sean McGowan, Seadhna Logan and Des Guckian all supported the motion.
