Plans to improve a road where there have been a number of accidents have been welcomed.
The surface texture on a stretch of the Camus road, including the installation of a speed detector, is estimated to cost €20,000.
Acknowledging that funding has been reduced for works in recent years Cllr Tom Wood commends both Cashel Town Council and South Tipperary County Council Roads Section for getting a significant amount of good work done in the area and he is hopeful that with an additional allocation other projects can be implemented before the year’s end.
€70,000 has been allocated by the Town Council for footpath reconstruction at Ard Mhuire, at the OPW Depot on Main Street, between Fox’s Bar and William Street, between the GAA car park and Castlegreen and from Castlegreen to Sunnyside, and at Oliver Plunkett Park. A new pedestrian crossing is planned for Friar Street, location yet to be decided. The County Council programme for 2014 includes an allocation from Planning Contributions of €173,000 for public lighting on Cahir Road and Old Road with construction of footpaths at Hughes Lot and Wallers Lot and drainage works at Coopers Lot.
