Parking spaces at North Quay have been removed to allow pedestrians more room to pass

A new-one way foot traffic system comes into operation in some parts of Drogheda this week.

The aim is to allow people adhere to social distancing regulations.

The main features are that those walking up Shop Street and Peter Street from St Mary's Bridge walk on the left hand footpath (Drogheda Independent side) and those coming down the street, walk on the other side (taxi rank, Augustinian Church, etc).

The same applies for Stockwell Street, keep to your left, Dominic Street, Duke Street, Fair Street, Dyer Street, Laurence's Street and William Street.

Those on Narrow West Street are also encouraged to keep to their left, but West Street remains two-way on both footpaths.

It will also be two-way on North Quay and a number of parking spaces have been extinguished as a result.
