Road safety concerns on old N7 road from Monasterevin to Kildare

Road safety concerns on the old N7 road from Monasterevin to Kildare were raised at the Athy Municipal District meeting held earlier today.

Councillor Aoife Breslin tabled a motion to improve the safety of road users on the old N7 given ‘ongoing problems with traffic ignoring the right of way’.

“This road is a nightmare,” said Cllr Breslin who narrowly avoided an accident on the road recently.

“I have concerns that people are ignoring the right of way at Junction 14. There have been a number of near accidents here.”

The meeting heard that the area engineer will take a look at the signs there informing traffic of the right of way here.

The area engineer is coming out to look at this members were told.
