NRA give the nod to reduced Tiernaur speed limits

The elected members of the Belmullet electoral area committee welcomed the news that the NRA have agreed to reduce the speed limit around Tiernaur village in Mulranny. The members were told that the NRA have given approval for the reduction and the council now had to enact bye-laws to bring them into action. The council has already written to the Garda for submissions on the issue, to which the Gardaí has 30 days to reply. The proposed bye-laws will then go on public display for 30 more days, and the public will have the opportunity to make submissions on it. Director of Services for the area Peter Hynes told the meeting: “Once all the steps are followed the issue will come before the members of the committee again for ratification before being put before the full council for the final vote.”

Independent Councillor Michael Holmes welcomed the news. “This move is vital for road safety and the development of the village of Tiernaur,” he said. “I’ve been campaigning for this for a long time, the NRA took their time in getting to this decision but we have got there now.” Fianna Fáil Cllr Michael McNamara also welcomed the news saying: “This is a very big stretch of road and a fast section of the road. I welcome this news and it’s very important that we move this process along as quickly as possible.”

Mr Hynes also welcomed the news, and thanked all those involved. “We’d like to acknowledge that the NRA have speed limits out of sequence here and reduced it which is something that they normally don’t do,” he said. “Tiernaur has the potential to be a really good small village and hopefully this will aid the development of this.”
