Time running out for submissions on nenagh traffic plan

Time is running out for people to make submissions on plans to radically change traffic flows in the centre of Nenagh.

Tipperary County Council is looking at introducing a one-way traffic system as recommended under the new Traffic and Transportation Plan for the town.

Last month over 50 traders from the centre of the town attended a briefing session on the proposals contained under the new plan.

The key recommendations in the draft document include proposals to introduce a one-way clockwise traffic flow system in a compact square through the core of the town.

This would see traffic flowing one-way up Pearse Street, starting at the AIB Bank, turning right into Mitchel Street, then turning right into Emmet Place to go up towards the Garda Station and then right again into Kickham Street to go back down to Pearse Street.

Removal of the traffic lights at the Market Cross is recommended to ensure the smooth flow of the new one-way system.

The final date for making submissions is by noon on Tuesday, June 23rd. They should be sent to the Nenagh Municipal District Administrator, Rosemary Joyce, at the Civic Offices, Nenagh.
