Money allocated for safety work at junctions

Two junctions in the Kilcullen area have been approved for safety work, writes Brian Byrne.

Transport minister Pascal Donohue has approved €30,000 for Kildare County Council to provide road safety works at Thompson's Cross, the scene of many crashes since the junction was built as part of the finishing of the M9 motorway.

And a €10,000 allocation has been made for safety improvements to Mullacash Cross Roads.

Deputy Martin Heydon has welcomed the approvals as 'great news'. "I'll be meeting with the KCC Road Design Team on the works, and we'll be consulting with the Garda before any works take place."
