North Tipperary County Council is to write to the Gardai over motorists breaking the lights on the bridge in Ballina. Cllr Jonathan Meaney told Newport area council: “There is going to be an accident.”
He was backed by Cllr Phyll Bugler.
Senior engineer Michael F Hayes warned that changing the light sequence could have consequences for the Clare side of the bridge.
“There is not a lot we can do if people go through a red light,” he said.
