No road grip

Reported in the Road or path defects category by Michael Hyland at 22:37, Sat 8 June 2019
Sent to Meath County Council 2 minutes later

Once again another car in the ditch due to bad road surface on the Kildalkey road. Definitely not the first time that I have reported this treacherous road only for Meath County Council not to bother doing anything about it.Unfortunatly this time it was my own vehicle involved and nobody else another hard lesson to be learned. When are the Co Council going to actually act on this type of report?

  • In the past week there have been two cars damaged on the same bend the first car ended in the very same place as my own car did previously, the second car was not so lucky this car removed a utility pole on the opposite side of the road. Just this morning driving towards Trim my own car took a slip travelling at 50kph again this road has no grip after a small amount of rain.

  • This same bend has been the site of two more incidents since I reported my own incident, one car ended up the same way as I did however the other car was a write off after taking down a utility pole. I have noticed that there is going to be works just before the turn for Carnisle for a stretch of a few hundred meters, badly needed but it is only a small stretch going for improvement the whole road needs to be vastly improved. Meath County Council please take note. w

  • The County Council have said in a recent communication that they have not received any reports of accidents on the Kildalkey/Trim road in recent years. I know that I have reported a few incidents on this medium over the last few years so either the County Council are in denial of receiving reports or the submitted reports are not being forewarded to them. please investigate, thank you. In regards to the last incident in which my own car was damaged and another two cars spun out, the surface is still the same in need of repair. Over the past three weeks there has been an improvement at the Kildalkey end of the road a 300m of new road section has been lifted and new surface been laid along with new gravel last week. the tip of the iceberg.
