Councillor Condemns “Frustrating” Lack Of Progress On Notorious Ennis Junction

The lack of progress on finding a safe solution to a notorious junction on the outskirts of Ennis has been described as “frustrating”.

It follows a motion raised by Fine Gael Councillor Mary Howard at this month’s meeting of the Ennis Municipal District to the junction where traffic emerges from the Shanaway Road onto the Lahinch Road.

Clare County Council has confirmed it’s working with Transport Infrastructure Ireland to implement a raised pedestrian crossing as an interim safety intervention, and is “progressing a preliminary design” for an eventual mini roundabout at the junction.



Councillor Howard says the issue is particularly pressing because of the speed at which motorists emerge from Shanaway Road.
