The new Cathaoirleach of the Ballina Municipal District is calling for verge cutting to commence on all roads.
Independent Councillor Seamus Weir says there is great growth at the moment which has resulted in secondary roads almost closed in.
Cllr. Weir says it is real danger coming out at junctions in particular.
He understands tree cutting cannot happen at this time of year but is stressing the importance to commence verge cutting.
