At a recent meeting of Naas Municipal District, I asked Kildare County Council for clarification on the operation of the new T-junction in Kill village. The T-junction was installed during the past year to replace the roundabout that served the Hartwell Road. Local residents have complained that the T-junction was creating traffic problems. Since the roundabout in the middle of Kill village was replaced by a T-junction, road users coming from the Hartwell Road are facing long tailbacks to get on to the Main Street. Many residents have raised this with me.
I’ve sought clarification from the council on the operation of the new junction layout. I want to see the council address the tailback issue since there weren’t any traffic problems when the roundabout existed. I understand the new design was mandated by the NTA and again it appears the motorist has been left the worse off for it.
