Councillor Gary Doherty has asked Donegal County Council to carry out speed surveys on the approach roads to Lifford and Castlefin.
Cllr Doherty wants the council to ascertain what additional measures can be put in place to prevent speeding in the two towns. He also wants the local authority to write to Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to ensure progression of the proposed safety scheme on the N14 at Gallows Lane, Lifford.
In response, the council informed Cllr Doherty that a further speed analysis can be requested on the N15.
“A Feasibility and Options Report HD15 for N15 Lifford was circulated to Members in 2020 and submitted to the TII for funding,” the response stated.
“The TII has approved funding for Option 1. The measures proposed are to improve signage on entry to the 60kph zone and reduce speed inside the 60kph zone, including additional traffic calming works at Main Street/Gallows Lane Junction to aid safe pedestrian crossing. Road Design shall undertake the Preliminary Design Report and Road Safety Audit before issuing construction drawings. It is envisaged the scheme shall be constructed in the third quarter of 2021.”
