Despite a previous refusal, Castlebar Municiapl District councillors have again invited representatives of Transport Infrastructure Ireland, TII, to come to Castlebar and take a look first hand at the speed of traffic passing through the village of Breaffy.
Councillors held a special meeting of the authority yesterday in an effort to resolve the ongoing request to the TII to reduce the speed limit through Breaffy from 100km per hour down to 60 km per hour.
The TII has offered to reduce the speed limit at Breaffy to 60km during school times, but has refused to reduce it on a permanent basis.
Councillors are rejecting this offer, as inadequate, and insist that the local community want the speed limit through the village to be reduced to 60km permanently.
The Cathaoirleach of Castlebar Municipal District, Independent cllr Michael Kilcoyne told Midwest News toady taht if the TII are "thick" on this issue "we will be thicker".
