Monaghan County Council Active Travel Department in conjunction with Monaghan Municipal District are introducing a temporary one-way system on the Link Road between Canal Street/Mall Road and Macartan Road (N54) in Monaghan Town for a period from Sunday 30th October to Sunday 22nd November 2022, which will be in place 24 hours, 7 days a week, for 4 weeks duration. The purpose of the trial is to provide a dedicated walk/cycle path along the link road to allow uninterrupted travel along the Ulster Canal Greenway, from the linear park onto Canal Street.
In order to make sufficient room for this on-road greenway link, it will be necessary to reduce the traffic lanes from two to one. It is proposed to therefore make this Link Road open to traffic in one direction only – from Canal Street out to the N54 Macartan Road. There will be an impact on traffic flow, and in order to assess this, it is proposed to carry out a trial one-month period, during which traffic counts will be taken and the flow of traffic will be carefully observed.
