Road issues are the most consistent problems brought to my attention throughout the Ferbane Electoral Area. The issues vary from:

  • Potholes
  • Road resurfacing
  • Speed zones: traffic calming measures
  • Junction: signage, reflector bollards
  • Road markings
  • De-icing and gritting of roads
  • Flooding and drainage issues
  • Lighting issues
  • Ditches and grass verges


The Roads Section has seen substantial reductions in revenue over the past two years and it has been become increasingly difficult to get all road issues sanctioned. The list can be endless when it comes to roads and with the “cold snap” creating an increase in the workload of road staff and ice/snow causing deterioration of the roads, it can be a lengthy period before work is completed.
