Disabled parking survey is planned for Naas

Cllr Carmel Kelly

There has been a call for a survey of disabled parking bays in Naas.

Cllr. Carmel Kelly said that all wheelchair users should be able to access footpaths in the town.

She told a recent Naas Municipal District meeting that a disabled parking bay outside Meadows & Byrne, Dublin Road, cannot be fully used because the kerb is too high.

“It’s possible to get out of the vehicle but not on to the footpath,” she said.

This means users have to go around the nearby corner on to Wolfe Tone Street and mount the footpath.

Cllr Kelly said she was concerned that an immediate undertaking to rectify the issue has not been forthcoming.

Kildare County Council said it will arrange to have a survey carried out, but potential works will be subject to funding and resources being available.
