A Tralee road is to be made one-way to improve safety for residents and motorists.

There’ll be no access from the N86 onto the lower end of the Ballymullen Road – also known as the Munster Bar Road – and the junction will be made one-way by narrowing it with ramps and build outs.

Road markings will be laid on the N86 to stop traffic turning right onto the Ballymullen Road, and there’ll also be an uncontrolled crossing point with a central island.

The issue came before the recent Tralee Municipal District meeting, where Cllr Pa Daly raised concerns about access to three houses at St Stephen’s Terrace being made one-way; council management say access can’t be left two-way for safety reasons.

It went to a vote and was passed 6 – 3; Sinn Féin Cllrs Pa Daly and Toireasa Ferris and Independent Cllr Sam Locke voted against the changes.
