The implementation of a pedestrian crossing outside a Killarney school is one step closer to becoming a reality.
A deputation addressed Kerry County Council last March to highlight safety issues outside Fossa National School and the need for such a facility.
The council has now agreed to submit an application to Transport Infrastructure Ireland, which will include proposals for a pedestrian crossing at this location.
The feasibility of the proposal will be examined by the TII.
Independent councillor Maura Healy-Rae, who brought the deputation, says this is a major step in the right direction.
