Motorists Beware When Travelling On Mill Road Thurles.

Motorists travelling south on the narrow Mill Road out of Thurles town, are being warned to take exceptional care.

Mill Road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Not one but two major potholes have developed, just some 10 metres apart close to the bridge at Brady’s Mill.
One large pothole has developed over the past two months; while the second one has been developing since January 12th 2022, latter last featured in our ‘Spot the Pothole Competition’, which featured on April 20th, 2023 last.

Yes, Thurles is now, without doubt, the most neglected town in Co. Tipperary, which begs the question why are we continuing to pay road tax and property tax.

There has been no effort to repair either of these wide deep craters, pictured above, but then locals are fully aware and have become used to the total neglect by (1) Thurles Co. Council and (2) Transport Infrastructure Ireland, of road surfaces and drains here in Thurles.

With massive delays in traffic entering Thurles town centre; Mill Road, Thurles has now become a popular alternative route for heavy traffic and machinery, same attempting to gain faster access to the town centre.
The vast majority of this traffic can be found breaking existing speed limits currently in place.
