Deputy Noel Dempsey: I have no function in relation to the application of traffic management or traffic calming measures at local level.
It is a matter for the road authority, Meath County Council, to assess the road safety situation in respect of that location and to determine if the situation warrants the application of any particular traffic management measures, for example traffic calming, a periodic speed limit, or restrictions on access to a particular public road.
