Council Says Speed Not An Issue To Warrant Traffic Calming On Basin Road

Posted by

AN analysis carried out by Kerry County Council at Basin Road has found that speed is not an issue to warrant traffic calming measures.

Cllr Terry O’Brien again brought up the issue at the Tralee Municipal District meeting of councillors on Monday, where he said the situation continues to be “horrendous” in the area down as far as the Cliffords Cash and Carry area.

Responding, Frank Hartnett of Kerry County Council said they carried out a speed analysis of traffic on the Basin Road — where the speed limit is 50kmph — and found that this was not an issue to warrant traffic calming measures.

The Council has plans on carrying out a pedestrian count analysis to see if the area warrants a pedestrian crossing.

Elsewhere, a traffic count to determine if a pedestrian crossing was needed at Boherbee — not far from Moyderwell school — was completed and found that a crossing was not warranted in the area. This came to light after a request for an update by Cllr Norma Foley.
