Cllr John Costelloe, Mill Road resident Marie Lysaght and Cllr Sharon Benson at location.Councillors John Costelloe and Sharon Benson are demanding that Limerick Council take immediate action to reinstate the road surface near the entrance to Meadow Brooke at the Mill Road, Corbally. A large part of the road is not properly surfaced and is several inches below the rest of the road for about fifty meters, giving rise to a dangerous lip.The Sinn Féin Councillors are concerned that as well as damaging cars that this uneven surface and lip also presents a serious safety issue for cyclists.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Councillor Costelloe said, “We have been approached by numerous residents in recent weeks who are demanding that this be sorted out. Cyclists, in particular, are at risk from this uneven surface and the thick plums of dust which are coming from it with every gust of wind.”Mill Road resident Marie Lysaght who regularly cycles the Mill Road has told the Councillors that she considers the road conditions to be hazardous.Cllr Sharon Benson said, “The Council need to sort this out before people will need four wheel drives to traverse this road.  It cannot be good for car suspensions and tires to say the very least while it is positively dangerous for those brave enough to try cycle along it. This road needs to be fixed before somebody get seriously injured or even worse.”A spokesman for Limerick City and County Council responded saying, “The Mill Road is in poor condition as a result of private development works approved under a Road Opening Licence issued by Limerick City and County Council.“We are greatly concerned about the issue and Engineering staff from our Licencing team are actively engaging with the developer. They have been advised of our concerns regarding the condition of the road and the unacceptable delay in rectifying the road condition.“Correspondence has issued to the developer to this effect and the consequences of a failure to address the road as matter of urgency has been advised to the contractor.” Facebook Twitter Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Email Previous articleFILM REVIEW: The Dead Don’t DieNext articleEmma’s biggest Irish concert – 700 seater at Rosbrien Pavilion Cian Reinhardthttp://www.limerickpost.ieJournalist & Digital Media Coordinator.
