Sinn Féin election candidate calls for footpath installation in Castleconnell

Sinn Féin local election candidate Ursula Gavan.

SINN Féin local election candidate for Limerick City East, Ursula Gavan, says that there is a clear need to install footpaths along the main R525 from Castleconnell Scout Campsite to Nelson’s Cross and along the commons to the railway gates.

“Following on from some much-needed road safety improvements carried out by Limerick City and County Council and the ESB, I firmly believe it is time for the council to go one step further.

“Nelson’s Cross has been an accident black spot for years and it is a very difficult cross for pedestrians to navigate. So, I am calling on the council to carry out a pedestrian safety audit on the junction, with the view of installing footpaths,” Ms Gavan said.
