There are increased road safety concerns in the village of Churchill after the opening of a new play park.
Children and families have been enjoying the new amenity since it opened in March.
But as summer comes, the higher number of people crossing the road in the area is a cause for concern.
Cllr Adrian Glackin brought the issue before Letterkenny MD on Wednesday, asking that new signs be placed to reduce speed at either side of the village.
Cllr Glackin said that a ‘Slow Down’ or ‘Children Crossing’ sign would improve safety for pedestrians crossing from the play park to the cafe, toilets and bars on the other side of the road.
However, the roads department replied to say that 50KPH speed limit signage is already in place in the village and the signs are full in accordance with guidelines.Tags:
