After extensive campaigning, Independent Councillor Kevin Callan has thanked Louth County Council for placing new reflective bollards along the route from the Cement Road to the Rosehall Roundabout, on the North Road.
“Pedestrians and cyclists in Drogheda need every possible protection as they take cars off the road and also need space to exercise freely and safety,” says Cllr Callan.
“The North Road circuit is tremendously busy with walkers, joggers and cyclists and when I asked the council to review safety they made efforts to do so and this also is reflected in the active travel funding the council have succeeded in obtaining.”
He says that in recent weeks, he had also asked the council to make sure reflect strips marking the cyclist/pedestrian corridors are clearly visible, in particular after dark and this has been done.
“Drogheda must continue to be a safe and welcoming place for those who want to exercise and travel by means other than a car and this project has been one step in the right direction, I will continue to work with the council on any such initiative,” he added.
