Safety measures ‘adequate’ at Patrickswell junction, says Council

Cllr Dan McSweeney in Patrickswell village.

FINE Gael councillor Dan McSweeney has asked what plans have been developed to improve safety at a Patrickswell junction. 

The City West representative asked the Council to improve traffic safety at the Collopy Cross Junction in Patrickswell.

He was informed by Senior Executive Engineer Mike Richardson that Limerick City and County Council’s Road Department have previously reviewed traffic safety at the junction.

“The junction layout and sightlines are currently adequate at this junction in its current environment,” he said.

“In 2022, Roads completed the recovery of line markings, improvements to road signage and a surface dressing scheme on the approach R526 from the N20 towards Collopy Cross. We will continue to liaise with Gardaí regarding any relevant traffic data or incidents,” Mr Richardson concluded.
