Work is continuing at the roundabout at Jackson’s Cross, on the western side of Clonmel, to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians.

Town Clerk Ger Walsh said that the embankment is being removed and the roundabout re-aligned to enhance the sight lines for motorists.

“The traffic lanes approaching the roundabout will be improved and won’t be as hidden. The angle of entry from the Cahir side will also be altered and there will be improved traffic flows exiting the roundabout”, he said.

The work, which is costing approximately €60,000 is being carried out by a local firm, Seamus Walsh Plant Hire, and is expected to be completed within four weeks.

The Town Clerk added that while there would be some traffic restrictions it’s not envisaged that there would be major disruption and the roads won’t be closed.
