New trees for town centre

More changes will be made to the layout of the Town Square in Templemore, heard the Town Council. Town Engineer John Jones said they’re carrying out a safety audit on six entrances in the middle of the town. Engineers want to remove “H-blocks”, though this will involve the removal of trees. “People should be informed that the markings will change,” said Cllr Maura Byrne. New trees will be planted to replace the old ones. New lights will also be installed, at a reported cost of E5,000. It will be “end of August by the latest” when the second part of the works proceed, said Mr Jones.
