A survey will be carried out at Woodville in Ballina to determine whether there is a need for speed bumps or traffic calming measures in the estate.
A survey was carried out in recent years in Woodville that showed that the traffic speeds in the estate did not require the implementation of traffic calming measures.
The up-to-date survey will be carried out on the back of a motion raised by Cllr Mark Duffy at last week’s meeting of the Ballina Municipal District.
He said he has received persistent requests from residents there.
Meanwhile, minor repairs are to be carried out at Greenhills estate where some isolated defects were identified by Ballina municipal district engineers.
These related to settlement and fatigue which would necessitate sections of the footpath being replaced.
This was also raised by Cllr Duffy as a notice of motion, who said these issues have been reported regularly by residents and users of these footpaths and he called for urgent repairs to be carried out.
