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.

Lorry sheds load crossing Slane Bridge
2nd June 2009

Traffic incidents continue to take place in Slane since the March crash. A HGV carrying a load of bales shed its load as it was travelling northwards around the sharp bend joining Slane Bridge to Mill Hill. Nobody was injured and little damage was done but the incident highlights the constant unexpected dangers facing residents and other road users in Slane on a daily basis. This incident, like the earlier crash in March, had the potential to be significantly more serious, possibly involving injury and even death.

Many incidents like this take place on a regular basis in Slane but because they are relatively minor and do not result in injury or fatalities, go almost unnoticed. These are very serious incidents and must be added to the ever lengthening record for the village. Meath County Council and the National Roads Authority seem largely unaware of the sheer volume of incidents such as these.

Read the report in the Meath Chronicle.

If you witness any traffic incidents we encourage you to please report them to the Gardaí in the first instance where required but also to let us know about them on our TRAFFICWATCH page.
