Signage at Ardagh Road junction along N55 to be removed

The signage at the junction at the Old Ardagh Road off the N55 needs to be changed as it is affecting the sightline for traffic turning onto the N55, according to Cllr Paul Ross.

Cllr Ross proposed a motion on the issue at the December meeting of Ballymahon Municipal District after having a number of ongoing complaints from the residents of the Old road in Ardagh.

“This sign affect people's sightline when driving from the old road onto the N55 and indeed the signs have been moved by local residents in the past only for the TII to replace them,” Cllr Ross told the Longford Leader.

Area Engineer Paul Newell said that he had inspected the signs and agreed that they were dangerous and that they would request that they be removed.

Cllr Ross welcomed this and said that he would like to thank the council for adding this section of road from the N55 to Rathvaldron to the list of roads up for resurfacing in 2019 “as it was in a very bad state of repair and this should ensure the safety of residents of the road”.
