Traffic calming for Carrick school prioritised again

Funding secured by Carrick Town Council last year to erect signs in the town warning lorry drivers of the height of the Pill Road railway bridge was spent instead on a traffic calming scheme outside a local school, a Council meeting heard.

Mayor of Carrick-on-Suir Cllr Kieran Bourke said the Council’s failure to provide the warning signs when it had the money was “tragic” because he feared a tragedy would happen arising from lorries striking the rail bridge.

He issued these comments after the Council informed him the funds earmarked for the signs was transferred to the traffic calming scheme at Scoil Mhuire Secondary School as the project was considered to be more important. The Council said it would will apply for funding for the signs again early this year.
