Donegal County Council has been urged to take further measures to reduce collision risks on the Ramelton Road outside Letterkenny.
Several accidents have been reported at the Golf Course Road and Kiltoy junctions leading onto the busy route.
Despite works being carried out in the area last year, local councillors are calling for more to be done to slow traffic down.
Councillors Jimmy Kavanagh and Donal Coyle raised residents’ concerns with the Letterkenny-Milford Municipal District this week.
Cllr Kavanagh said that residents are happy with the newly built safe location for schoolchildren waiting on buses, but the accidents continue to happen.
He said there have been several small accidents on the Golf Course Road side of the junction, and that a recent one was “quite bad”.
Cllr Coyle added that he believes that around seven accidents have occurred at the Kiltoy junction alone since 2021.
Cllr Kavanagh proposed that an island crossing could be installed for pedestrians, while Cllr Coyle suggested that variable message signage could be installed to alert drivers to the speed limit and junctions ahead.
Cllr Coyle said: “I’d be hoping because of the serious accidents that have happened, particularly in Tipperary since our last meeting, that the government are now looking at reducing speed limits.”
Councillors were told that no funding is available for the area following the low-cost accident scheme last year, which also tightened the radius of the junction.
Donegal County Council Area Manager David McIlwaine said that a speed assessment can be carried out and that variable message signs are a possibility, but they are funding-dependent.
Meanwhile, the Roads Section of Letterkenny-Milford is set to hold discussions with An Gardai Siochana to identify the causes of recent incidents that have occurred at this location.
