This week, Cllr. Marty McDermott confirmed that a yield/right-of-way system will be put in place on Lisadurn Bridge in the coming weeks in order to ensure the safety of road users. Cllr. McDermott said the bridge has been of “huge concern” to members of the public for some time.
“This is an issue which was raised during my election campaign, and again when I was elected. The bridge at Lisadurn (Golf Links Road, leading to Tremane) is too narrow for two vehicles to cross at the same time and has caused confusion for road users for many years. I was very eager to deal with this important issue and I am delighted to be able to confirm that yield/right of way signage and road markings will now be put in place at the bridge.
“I’d like to thank Roscommon County Council and the engineer for their swift action on this. I look forward to seeing the signage and road markings installed in the very near future so that the bridge can be made safe for road users,” he said.
