Nenagh Stop sign ‘hidden behind a tree’

The Stop sign at Grallagh is 'hidden behind a tree'
The Stop sign on the junction between the N52 bypass and the Grallagh road is hidden by a tree, according to Cllr Virginia O’Dowd. She said that the location of the sign makes it a dangerous junction for motorists, who do not see the warning until they are almost on top of the junction.

The Stop sign on the junction between the N52 bypass and the Grallagh road is hidden by a tree, according to Cllr Virginia O’Dowd. She said that the location of the sign makes it a dangerous junction for motorists, who do not see the warning until they are almost on top of the junction.

The Labour councillor had called on Nenagh Town Council to examine the offending sign and see if they can move it back along Grallagh road.

“I have have asked the council to move the pole to a safer and more visible position and I am pleased to say the council is looking into the matter,” she said.

Meanwhile, she welcomed Nenagh Town Council’s decision to carry out work on the same road from the junction to Clareen bridge, the boundary between the town and North Tipperary County Council.

“This road carries a lot of traffic between residents and people using Burgess GAA grounds at Kilcoleman. It had been in poor repair for a number of years,” she said.

Initial preparation had begun on the road, but has since been delayed because of bad weather, she said.
