Fine Gael Senator Anthony Lawlor said that Kildare County Council has approved the installation of a temporary crossing for Kill village. KCC have said that permanent crossings will be built as part of the NTA funded Naas to Kill cycle scheme. This project is at the detailed design phase.
The community of Kill have been forcefully campaigning for the crossing since the unfortunate accident in the village a number of weeks ago. We have had huge support for our campaign; Kildare’s Garda Chief Superintendent has previously urged the county council to install a pedestrian crossing in Kill and Johnstown.
Senator Anthony Lawlor said: “People like Diana Maynard, Paula Mills, Aurley Keenan and Cllr Fintan Brett deserve huge respect for what they have done, everyone who stood with and beside the Kill community in the wind and rain does.“
“The next phase is to get the temporary crossing installed immediately. Then, keep the pressure on KCC and the NTA to get the permanent crossing built ASAP. The people of Kill deserve no less. We won’t stop until we are successful.”
