Cllr. Frank Maher has asked Drogheda Borough Council to take urgent action to repair them after he had received numerous complaints about the two deep pot-holes that are dangerous and could damage vehicles.

'They are in a dangerous location and a lot of unsuspecting motorists have driven into them. I am concerned about the overall state of the road at North Quay. It is in a bad way and in need of upgrading. Work also needs to be done on the pedestrian crossing at Scotch Hall,' said Cllr. Maher.

'There needs to be a co-ordinated response to dealing with potholes throughout the town following the recent bad weather. It is really bad on Duleek Street and Platin Road. Both of these roads carry a high volume of traffic particularly HGV's. The roads are broken up in places and are in need of repair.'
