Plans for new one-way traffic system for Waterford city-centre
A new one-way traffic system has been proposed for a section of Waterford city-centre.
Under the proposal (see drawing above), Meeting House Lane would become one-way from it’s junction with Thomas Hill, in an easterly direction, and the junction with Sargent’s Lane/Jenkins Lane carpark.
Vehicles exiting Jenkins lane carpark would be forced to turn right on to Sargent’s Lane and right again at its junction with O’Connell Street to access the Quay via Gladstone Street.
Waterford City and County Council said: “The proposal would improve traffic flow while also addressing traffic safety concerns in the area and make the road safer for pedestrians/cyclists and also facilitate future development of pedestrian safety measures.”
Objections or submissions to the poposed one-way system can be made in writing to Aideen Jacob, Administrative Officer, Roads Department, Waterford City and County Council, City Hall, The Mall, Waterford or by email to email@example.com not later than 12 Noon on 2nd November, 2020.
