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.

Slane residents protest on N2.
9th April 2009

Up to 70 local residents of Slane took to the N2 to protest the ongoing lack of action on the road safety problem. Traffic was blocked for 30 minutes causing significant tailbacks on all roads leading to the village.

Residents are very angry and frustrated at the years spent by responsible authorities ignoring the problem. A very strong message was sent out locally and nationally that the people of Slane are no longer willing to tolerate the continued inaction.

One protester commented that if the volume of road accidents in a town dictates whether or not it is bypassed then Slane has more than reached its quota of deaths. It is clear that bypasses are constructed on economic grounds to shorten journey times by a matter of minutes rather than to save lives.
