NEW road markings at Barryroe National School are designed to ease traffic congestion and increase safety, during rush hours.

Cllr Paul Hayes this week welcomed the recent road markings set down by Cork County Council which allow for a dedicated school bus parking bay outside the national school.

Cllr Hayes said he had lobbied the Council over a number of months, and was now ‘delighted’ to see this work done in time for the new school term which started this week.

‘The area outside the school often became a bottleneck for traffic in the mornings and afternoons during school drop-offs and collections, with buses and cars parking precariously,’ he said.

‘Parking bays for cars have also been painted, so hopefully this will lead to more organised parking and alleviate many of the previous traffic issues. I hope that parents will respect the school bus parking bays so that children can safely enter and exit the school in the future,’ he added.
