Slane has a medieval bridge and an 18th century
road carrying 21st century articulated traffic…
The only long-term solution to the
ongoing traffic problem in Slane
is the construction of the bypass.

22 white crosses on Mill Hill
August 2009

Crosses commemorating those killed on the roads around Slane at the bottom of Mill Hill are refurbished and a new explanatory sign is added.

These crosses were first erected in the aftermath of a fatal crash involving the death of a 2-year-old child in 2001. A truck crushed him to death when it mounted his mother’s car while she was stopped at traffic lights on the Mill Hill.

At that time, every assurance was given that the problem of road safety in Slane would be comprehensively dealt with, but this was still not enough to secure the construction of the bypass. Some remedial measures were installed on the Mill Hill following this incident including the gantry-mounted traffic lights and non-slip surfacing. However, although they may indeed have saved lives, these measures have not prevented the numerous incidents to have taken place on this section of road since.
