New Thurles Traffic Management Plan Began Today

liberty-square-eastA fourteen day trial of a new traffic management plan came into effect today in Thurles.
This new system, which has the full approval of An Garda Síochána includes a number of new one-way routes, put into place from early this morning.

However Gardaí are continuing to remind motorists who are entering Thurles from Templemore that they must stop and yield to the two lanes of traffic coming down right on the now one-way Cuchulainn Road, while noting also that traffic from Nenagh direction is now being diverted left away from Parnell Street, which is presently one-way only to drivers leaving Liberty Square.

So during this trial period “Lets be careful out there folks, concentrate and watch out for those newly erected signs.”

So how was it for you today ?

Your comments, suggestions welcomed.

In the meanwhile – Drive With Care.

    Absolutely terrible I don’t know what they were thinking.

  • Michael, there appear to be mixed views on the new changes certainly. Personally I believe if they had removed the ESB pole (The Leaning Pole of Thurles) at the entrance to Parnell Street and the ESB pole on left from Slievenamon Road entrance as you leave Liberty Square, traffic flow would have been greatly improved. As you probably have noticed truck drivers have huge difficulties manoeuvring in both these areas and are forced to break the law wandering into wrong traffic lanes to proceed about their business. Any truck drivers out there who would agree? As for the 14inch footpath turning left from the Suir bridge unto the back of Tesco, I ain’t going to go there. Sooner the better the McCarty Report recommendations regarding local Councillors is implemented.

    There are various opinions on the new plan but it will probably take more than 2 wks to get used to it. This as I understand it was a Garda Plan with no consultation with Councillors so as a newly elected one myself I take grave exception to your last comment.

    It’s a mess,
