MONASTEREVIN councillor Kevin Duffy has said that, on foot of his recent submissions, it’s good to see that Kildare Co Council has installed double yellow lines on Main Street, Monasterevin, in the vicinity of Ladbrokes, at what he described as a known bottleneck. He has asked people to take notice of the lines and not to park on them as parking fines could be issued.
Speaking to the Kildare Nationalist , Cllr Duffy said that they had been looking to get a number of line markings in the town over the last couple of months, adding that cars would park on both sides of the road – reducing it to a single lane. He also noted that there is an adjacent public car park.
Unfortunately, he said, two other agreed line marking works have yet to be completed, at the Nags Head and for two disabled car spaces at St Peter’s National School. On the former, Cllr Duffy explained that drivers coming out at the Nags head from Drogheda Street can see left towards the Kildare/Dublin side but not to Portlaoise. “That can be quite dangerous there, especially if there’s a van or something parked there,” he said.
Cllr Duffy promised to follow both projects up with the council with a view to having them completed as soon as possible.
