TRAFFIC FLOW PROBLEM
THE council is to examine traffic at the junction at Market Green in Balbriggan to see if a change to the sequencing of the traffic signals would help with traffic flow.
Cllr Gerry McGuire (Lab) asked the council to look at the sequencing of the lights and the operations department agreed to 'carry out an analysis of the junction to determine if any changes to the sequence and phasing of the lights will improve the operation of the junction during peak hours'.
REVIEW OF TRAFFIC SIGNS
A REVIEW of traffic signs in and around Rush and Lusk Train Station is to be carried out by the council after one councillor complained that there was a 'serious traffic hazard' at the station.
Cllr Ken Farrell (Lab) asked the council to 'have the areas adjacent to the entrances and exits of Rush and Lusk Railway Station examined and will be indicate what appropriate signing can be introduced to this location to highlight the serious traffic hazard that exists with the movement of traffic to and from the railway station, particularly at peak times'.
The council's operations department said it would 'carry out an examination of the location during the peak hour traffic periods to determine what measures, if any are required, and a further report will follow'.
