A low cost safety scheme will look to tackle congestion problems at Breaffy National School in Ballina.
That’s according to local councillor John O’Hara who raised the issue at a recent Municipal District meeting.
The cllr says that congestion on route to the school from the Bonniconlon/Ardnaree road was bad before the pandemic, but this has worsened with fewer pupils using the bus service.
Even before the outbreak of Covid-19 school goers and Ballina commuters could be held in traffic at the location for up to 30 minutes.
Cllr O’Hara told Midwest News that with the cooperation of landowners the road could be widened next year.
