Claims cycleways could have positive economic potential for Kerry

Developing and maintaining cycleways could have a positive economic impact on Kerry.

That’s according to Kerry Independent Alliance councillor Michael Gleeson.

He is calling for cycle lanes to be preserved to ensure safety for cyclists.

He claims overgrown grass is resulting in the width of some lanes being reduced, while water and dirt are pooling on others.

Cllr Gleeson also says some surfaces are rough and in need of work.
