A local Donegal County Councillor has expressed serious road safety concerns over traffic calming measures on a road in Inishowen.
Cllr Jack Murray explained how the busy stretch of road near a filling station in Buncrana was situated beside a GAA club and local school and housing estate.
The Sinn Fein councillor highlighted the issue with Seamus Hopkins, Area Manager for the local authority, who said they would look into the matter.
“I have been raising this issue for months now and it is about the possibility of installing an island near the Railway Road in Buncrana.
“The stretch of road has become very popular with schoolchildren now because of the local shop. We also have the GAA park there and Oakfield Park housing estate.
“So, we have a problem with pedestrians trying to dart across the road when the traffic is very fast-moving.
“I think there should be a point now halfway across the road for pedestrians, especially the schoolchildren when they are their break, to be able to use.”
