Trim Municipal District Ordinary Meeting 16th September 2016.

7 Notice of Motion
7.1 Submitted by Councillor Trevor Golden
“That Meath County Council urgently addresses the issues relating to speeding and pedestrian safety on St. Loman’s Street – these issues were raised at meetings of Trim Municipal District in April and November 2015 and February and July 2016, in addition to being raised in correspondence submitted to Meath County Council from June 2015 to July 2016.”

With regards to the provision of a pedestrian crossing at Loman Street, a speed survey is required to be undertaken.

It is confirmed that Loman Street (L-4022) in Trim is included on the schedule of areas for review and, as part of this review, traffic speed surveys are due to be carried out in the coming weeks. Any decision in relation to a pedestrian crossing at this location will be based on the results of these surveys and other relevant data gathered during the review while also taking into account available resources and funding.
