Paul Mahon started this petition to Kildare County Council

The volume of traffic in Derrinturn is very high, from general motor traffic, GoAhead Buses, Monaghan Mushroom articulated trucks and Waste collection traffic going to Drehid waste facilities. The slí around the village should and could be a safe space for people to exercise and walk away from traffic, but with the lack of any lights, pedestrian/cycling infrastructure and the use of the route as a rat run to avoid the village it can be quite dangerous. There are a lot more people using the route for exercise during the Covid lockdown and that means a lot more small children on bikes and vulnerable people looking to take some exercise. 

I would like to see the Council temporarily close the slí route past the GAA club to through traffic, to improve the safety for residents who live along the route and also the wider community who use it. 

Getting the council to act on this would require the support of the majority of the community so I am asking residents to sign and share if you support the initiative 

Thanks Paul
