These include works to extend the left turning lane at the traffic lights and engagement with a local landowner regarding a boundary setback approaching the level crossing.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “After an initial visit to Annacotty Business Park back in January 2016, and subsequent visits where I had arranged for senior council executives to meet with the management of the park, I felt some very necessary improvements to the local infrastructure were needed to cope with the high volumes of traffic on the road,” Cllr Hurley said this week.“Over 400 trucks a day use the road, and total traffic on a week day averages 7,500, with 1,200 on Saturdays and 400 on Sundays.”It is hoped that in the coming weeks the left turn lane approaching the traffic lights will be lengthened by 50-70m. Other elements of the scheme to be completed before Christmas include traffic calming signage in place on the east side of the Annacotty Business Park and the boundary approaching the railway gates to be set back by 3m.“It is expected that the footpath which links Clyduff to the Annacotty Business will commence early in the New Year. There is a substantial amount of preparatory work to be completed prior to the commencement of the footpaths and I am advised that the above timetable is dependent on the prevailing weather conditions where rainfall and low temperatures will impact the works programme.“The commencement of these improvements are most welcome and I am very grateful to the Council for their co-operation and foresight on this project,” she concluded.
