Residents of a busy regional road in south Roscommon are appealing for a number of safety measures to be put in place before a serious incident may occur.
The R362 has become much busier in recent years as people from east-Galway seek a quicker way to access Athlone and the M6.
Residents in the Coollusty area claim that hundreds of trucks and cars travel a section of the route every day near their homes, but there is a lack of road markings or speed signs to alert motorists to slow down or take care on the route.
June Delaney says it is very frustrating that there appears to be no single authority in charge of road markings in Ireland to whom they can make a direct appeal.
She has contacted the local authority, the RSA as well as the Gardai, but no alterations have occured on the road.
She feels some small changes could make a big difference in the area:
Roscommon Coutny Council has issued the following statement to Shannonside FM about the road:
It is the responsibility of An Garda Síochána to enforce compliance with speed limits on the public road network. Roscommon County Council is responsible for the maintenance of the public road network in County Roscommon. The existing road signage and road markings are typical of a rural road in County Roscommon.
