Tipperary County Council wishes to advise motorists and the general public that the one-way traffic management system will be brought into effect in Nenagh Town Centre from the 11th April 2024 at approximately 11am.  

The scheme arises from the recommendations of a 2019 traffic report for Nenagh Town and will improve vehicular and pedestrian traffic flow through the town centre via changes to traffic flow, junction controls and street layouts. 

Tipperary County Council published notification of the scheme in April 2023 under Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act, 1994, as amended by Section 46 of the Public Transport Regulation Act 2009, and construction work has been ongoing since January to allow its implementation. 

Measures to be introduced, which will improve vehicular and pedestrian traffic flow, include changing Pearse Street, Mitchel Streel, Emmet Place and Kickham Street to two-lane one-way streets, with traffic flow on Silver Street and Emmet Place reversed to align with the clockwise direction of the one-way system. 

Larger HGVs will be restricted from turning left from Mitchel Street onto Sarsfield Street and will be required to turn right onto Emmet Place.

Traffic lights will be removed at the Market Cross and the mini roundabout and pedestrian barriers will be removed at the Summerhill/Kickham Street junction.  The installation of well-lit zebra crossings at key pedestrian desire lines is provided. Raised tables at several of the crossings will aid in managing traffic speeds.

The bus stop on the eastern side of Kickham Street (outside Rocky‚Äôs Bar) will remain, while the bus stop on the western side of Kickham Street will be relocated to Pearse Street (outside Careplus). 

The below schematic outlines the direction of traffic flows to be followed as part of the implementation and the location of the new bus stop on Pearse Street. 

Scheme details and traffic diagrams can be viewed in the attached information booklet.
