Limerick City and County Council have informed Willie O’Dea TD that they have agreed to carry out a feasibility study on the need for a pedestrian crossing on the Old Cratloe Road at the entrance to Shannonvale.Willie O’Dea TD said, “Many residents of Shannonvale and surrounding areas had requested that a pedestrian crossing be placed outside their estate.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Myself and Pat O’Neill have since met with senior engineers within the Council and have now been assured that a feasibility study will be done in the area and if a pedestrian crossing is warranted, the Council will apply for funding from the Department to do the job.The news has been welcomed by Local Fianna Fáil activist Pat O’Neill as well as the Fianna Fáil TD who have been working on the issue on behalf of local residents.Pat O’Neill who had helped secure the pedestrian crossing on the Clonmacken road said, “It was imperative that we acted as soon as residents brought this issue to our attention. The safety of local residents is paramount as there are a lot of elderly residents and young families living within the estate and for them to enjoy the convenience of the local amenities, their safety in crossing what is a very busy road needs to be taken into account.Pat concluded, “We have speed ramps in the area, but these are not serving their purpose and I have also asked the council to look at the height and shape of these, as some have caused damage to the undercarriage of cars due to being so severe.” Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow TAGSLimerick City and CountyNewspolticisShannonvaleTransport NewsPoliticsTransportFeasibility Study approved for for road safety measures at ShannonvaleBy Staff Reporter – June 18, 2019 224 Facebook Previous articleLeggy Limerick & Stars of the Future- Talking points after Tipperary defeatNext articleTies between Shannon Free Zone and the Chinese Government stronger than ever Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin WhatsApp Twittercenter_img Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Print Limerick on Covid watch list RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Email Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?last_img read more

Lightning, record crowd at Off Road Speedway

first_imgBy Randy [email protected], Neb. (June 23) – Lightning provided a fitting background display to the south of Off Road Speedway during Saturday night’s races, contended in front of well over 1,000 fans, be­lieved to be the biggest crowd ever at the Norfolk oval.Colby Langenberg earned his long-awaited first Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod win of the sea­son, after starting five rows back in the field. Langenberg secured the lead with six laps remain­ing, darting between Joey Haase and Troy Bruns, then winning by several car lengths.“It’s been a struggle. We started the year down at Beatrice and had a heck of a car, ran second and third down there, then struggled for about five weeks with motor and carburetor issues,” Langen­berg said. “It felt good to finally get the monkey off our back and get a win this year. I had four wins last year and have been trying to get that first one this year.”Cameron Wilkinson returned to victory lane for the fourth time in seven IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock outings.The IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, a closely-contested race filled with three- and four-wide racing, was won by Jason Wilkinson.last_img read more
