Safety works planned for main road into Letterkenny

Donegal County Council is to proceed with safety works on the outskirts of Letterkenny between the Dry Arch and Polestar roundabouts.

A pavement and centre island is to be built on the four lane stretch between the two roundabouts, with the Cullion Road the only right turn that will be allowed for cars travelling out of Letterkenny. Speed limits on the road will also be reduced, and traffic lights are beriong considered on the roundabout.

A suggestion that traffic lights be erected on the roundabouts is also being assessed.

Letterkenny's Mayor Cllr Gerry Mc Monagle says the works are very necessary...............
