THE Old Derrig Bridge in Killeshin is being hit by traffic at night and needs reflectors on the wall to offset further damage.
At the latest meeting of the Graiguecullen-Portarlington Municipal District, cllr Padraig Fleming called on Laois County Council to carry out repairs and install reflectors on the bridge wall.
He said that vehicles have been hitting the bridge and damaging it slightly. He was of the opinion that these strikes are happening at night, when motorists have to pull in due to oncoming cars.
Philip McVeigh, senior executive engineer, roads section, replied that Laois County Council has inspected this bridge and will arrange for these works to be carried out at the earliest opportunity.
