Concern over speeding through towns and villages

There is growing concern about speeding vehicles through some towns and villages in the region.

And it’s a particular problem where just one main street or a major road runs through such built-up areas.

There were a number of motions on the issue at a recent meeting of Sligo councillors from the Ballymote/Tubbercurry/West Sligo area.

Independent Councillor Margaret Gormley called for speed warning signs in Culfadda.

Fianna Fail Councillor Jerry Lundy asked for a pedestrian crossing and speed ramps in Cloonacool while his party colleague Paul Taylor voiced concerns about speeding through Gurteen.

Cllr Taylor said it’s a major concern for residents of certain towns and villages.
