Traffic issues on Pearse Road and Oldtown Road need to be addresses – Cllr Larkin

A Letterkenny Councillor has claimed there has been a lack of action on the LUTS study which was commissioned in 2009 to identify the town's main traffic black spots.

Councillor Dessie Larkin says that while there have been some measures introduced as a result of the study, a long term solution to traffic issues at junctions on pearse Road and Oldtown Road has yet to be found.
