New Town Centre One-Way System To Be Introduced In Nenagh Today.

Tipperary County Council wish to advise motorists and the general public, visiting Nenagh, that a one-way traffic management system will be brought into effect in Nenagh Town Centre from today, April 11th, 2024 at approximately 11:00am this morning.

The scheme arises from the recommendations of a 2019 traffic report for Nenagh Town and is expected to improve vehicular and pedestrian traffic flow through the town centre via changes to traffic flow, junction controls and street layouts.

Tipperary County Council published notification of the scheme in April 2023 under Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act, 1994, as amended by Section 46 of the Public Transport Regulation Act 2009, and construction work has been ongoing since January, to allow for its implementation.

Measures to be introduced, include changing Pearse Street, Mitchel Streel, Emmet Place and Kickham Street to two-lane one-way streets, with traffic flow on Silver Street and Emmet Place reversed to align with the clockwise direction of the one-way system.

Larger HGVs will be restricted from turning left from Mitchel Street onto Sarsfield Street and will be required to turn right onto Emmet Place.

Traffic lights will be removed at the Market Cross and the mini roundabout and pedestrian barriers will be removed at the Summerhill/Kickham Street junction. The installation of well-lit zebra crossings at key pedestrian desire lines is provided. Raised tables at several of the crossings will aid in managing traffic speeds.

The bus stop on the eastern side of Kickham Street (outside Rocky’s Bar) will remain, while the bus stop on the western side of Kickham Street will be relocated to Pearse Street (outside Careplus).

Scheme details and traffic diagrams can be viewed in the attached information booklet, found HERE.
