Cahill has received confirmation in relation to the instalment of warning signs and flashing amber lights on the three approach roads to the school.
Speaking on this today, Deputy Cahill said: “I am pleased to receive confirmation from Tipperary County Council, following representations I have been making on behalf of school management, that road safety measures will be improved on the three approach roads to Leugh NS.
“Leugh school has thrived in the last number of years under the management of school principal, Louise McCullagh, and larger enrolment numbers now means that additional traffic measures are badly needed. There is serious concern among both parents and school staff that a serious accident could happen outside the school without additional measure being taken. After visiting the school myself during the morning rush, I was left in no doubt that action was needed.
“I am delighted to confirm that the Council has agreed to install flashing amber lights and warning signs on the three approach roads to the school; the road from the Hospital of the Assumption; the road from Killinan; and the road from Dovea Genetics.
“I look forward to seeing these works being carried out in the near future and I would like to thank the Council for their cooperation in this matter”, Cahill concluded.
