Members of the Foxford Enhancement Group are petitioning Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to carry out urgent safety works at the pedestrian crossing of the N26, in Foxford town centre.
These works are most necessary in order to mitigate the high potential of serious injury to pedestrians using the crossing. As the N58 intersects the N26 at a higher road level, it makes the pedestrian crossing very difficult to see by motorists driving on the N26, approaching the pedestrian crossing from both directions.
In addition, they feel that enhanced lighting of the pedestrian crossing along with pre-warning digital signage on the N26 in both directions and in advance of the pedestrian crossing, is required most urgently.
Members of the voluntary group gathered outside Mass services at the weekend at St Michael’s Church in the town to seek signatures.
Foxford-based councillor Neil Cruise says he plans to raise the issue at tomorrow’s Mayo County Council Roads SPC meeting with TII.
