Athlone’s Church Street goes one-way from today

The one-way traffic system on Athlone’s Church Street comes into operation today as part of a €3m revamp of the town centre.

Under the system, traffic will be moving east to west down the street with the creation of an orange loop for other traffic moving through the town.

More works aimed at enhancing the Church Street area will start next month and include the development of a new plaza, street furniture and lighting.


Athlone district manager Pat Keating says permanent signage is in place to notify motorists about the loop so there is no danger of people getting lost.
