ITEM NO. 15
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy
"To ask the Chief Executive to install the standard directional signage that is
installed where priority right of way is given on the section of road between the
Orchard Estate and Oldtown Village where such a situation exists?”
The road from the Orchard housing estate to the village of Oldtown contains a
give and take chicane system. On both approaches to the chicane system there
are yield traffic signs and yield road surface markings. There are also ‘road
narrows’ and ‘prepare to stop’ signs on both approaches to the chicane.
At the junction with the R122 there are yield paint markings and a yield sign.
Additional signage at this location is not considered a priority. If signs are
missing or yield paint markings are worn they will be placed on the Signing and
Lining programme for renewal.
