The City Council is advising motorists that from tommorow major traffic restrictions will be in operation in parts of the city to facilitate traffic calming measures. (Oct 30)

Works to include the construction of footpaths and pedestrian facilities will get underway at Claddagh Quay and Grattan Road areas.

Contractors John Madden & Co has been appointed for the works, which are expected to be finished by December.

The contractors, in co-operation with City Council, will put a traffic management plan in place, similar to that operated during the Volvo Ocean Race Finale in July.

This will restrict access via Grattan Road and Claddagh Quay to through traffic between the city centre and Salthill, while maintaining local access for residents.

Traffic calming had been sought in the area by the Claddagh Residents Association for some time.

Spokesperson for the City Council Gary McMahon says motorists will be given advance warning on the roadworks
