Driving at speed: 'Waterford estate needs traffic calming measures'

 'Waterford estate needs traffic calming measures'

A local election candidate is calling for traffic calming measures to address increased traffic through a County Waterford estate. 

Sinn Féin's Conor D. McGuinness wants traffic calming measures to be introduced at Marquis Drive housing estate in Dungarvan. The call comes as residents are expressing concerns about increased traffic through the estate.

“Marquis Drive has gone from being a quiet cul-de-sac to a busy thoroughfare for a new estate. This has led to increased traffic in the estate and residents are reporting a problem with cars driving at speed through the area," Mr McGuinness tells Waterford Live

"Rudimentary traffic calming measures like speed ramps or cushions and the installation of signage would do much to address the problem. I have written to the local authority to make them aware of the safety concerns of residents.”
