Donegal County Council has unveiled plans to introduce a new one-way system in and around Donegal Town.
The plans are now on display and can be visited on the council’s website.
The proposals will see a one-way system onto Tirchonaill Street, Castle Street, Water Street and New Row within the town.
Planners say this is aimed at improving traffic flow, safety for pedestrians and vulnerable road users and also to create additional on-street parking.
The project will include:
Designate Tirchonaill Street one-way from the junction with New Row to the Bridge Street junction with traffic flowing towards The Diamond.
Designate Castle Street one-way with traffic flowing from Water Street towards Tirchonaill Street.
Designate Water Street one-way with traffic flowing from Main Street towards New Row.
Designate New Row from Water Street Bridge to the junction with Tirchonaill Street one-way with traffic flowing from Water Street Bridge towards Tirchonaill Street.
Provision for a mini-roundabout at New Row/Tirchonail Street/ Drumrooske Road Junction.
Provision of additional on street parking on Tirchonaill Street, Water Street & New Row.
New public street lighting on Tirchonaill Street between Castle Street and Bridge Street.
New road markings, signage, drainage works, landscaping, and accommodation works.
New road layout with kerbing for new footpaths to be built in accordance with DMURS & TII Standards.
The one-way systems will be carried out in accordance with Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994.
