A new traffic management plan for Headford will give the residents a chance to highlight road safety concerns, ease congestion, and make footpaths more accessible to pedestrians and the disabled.
This is the view of Fianna Fáil Cllr Mary Hoade who has welcomed an announcement that the Galway County Council is to begin preparing a traffic management plan for Headford.
The plan, to be drawn up by the electoral area office, will allow the public to make submissions on the introduction of pay and display parking, off street car parking, widening/reducing footpaths, and laying of single or double yellow lines. The time frame of the preparation of the plan is six months.
“In the last number of years, Headford has developed at a rapid rate with many new businesses opening up,” Cllr Hoade said. “The volume of vehicular traffic has increased substantially, making it much harder for traffic to pass through the town.”
