    Proposed Traffic Calming Scheme at N72, Lismore/Ballyrafter, Co. Waterford

    CONSULTATION END DATE(S): May 1st 2019

    Waterford City and County Council proposes to undertake the construction of a traffic calming scheme along the N72 national secondary road on the eastern approach to Lismore town.

    The proposed works includes modification of the existing traffic lanes, construction of parking bays, construction of new footways and modification of the existing footways with associated sundry works. The proposed length of the scheme is approximately 350 meters.

    The implementation of the traffic calming scheme with landscape strategy will create a safe environment for all road users with a strong emphasis on non-motorised road users.

    The main goal is to reduce vehicular speed and improve the facilities for the vulnerable road users. This will be achieved by the alteration of the existing N72/R668 junction layout, reducing the width of the main road and improving pedestrian facilities on the southern side of the N72.

    Drawings are available for inspection below and during normal office hours from Wednesday 20th March to Wednesday 17th April 2019 at the Council’s Customer Services Departments in the Civic Offices, Dungarvan and Bailey’s New Street, Waterford.

    The Council will consider any submissions or observations made in writing regarding the proposal. Submissions should be lodged with Ms. Aideen Jacob, Administrative Officer, Roads Department, Waterford City & County Council, Menapia Building, The Mall, Waterford or by email to to be received before 4.00pm on Wednesday 1st May, 2019.
