New wheelchair parking and stop sign for Stradbally

A new wheelchair parking bay and ‘Stop’ sign will be installed in Stradbally, as two motions requesting both were passed at the recently Graiguecullen-Portarlington Municipal District meeting.

Councillor Tom Mulhall asked that Laois County Council erect a stop sign and put marking at the junction Charter road to Ballinteskin and the Graiguecullen road, Stradbally.

Speaking at the meeting, senior executive engineer for Laois County Council Philip McVeigh said that the council would arrange ‘Stop’ road markings and signage at the junction to make it safer.

Meanwhile, a wheelchair parking bay will be installed on the Main Street in Stradbally outside of Dunne’s pub.

Councillor Paschal McEvoy requested the accessible parking bay, and was told that it should be completed within the coming weeks.
