A new bus shelter planned for Carlingford should not block either the view of the sea or the mountains, according to Dundalk Municipal District committee.

Cllr Peter Savage queried where the shelter would be situated, and was one of a number of councillors who asked if it would disrupt anyone’s view.

Cllr Jim Loughran raised a similar point.

The shelter will be along the road in front of the carpark along the sea front wall at Carlingford. It will be just under two metres high but will be a see-through shelter with no advertising allowed.

The shelter will be financed by the National road Authority (NTA).

Cllr Mark Dearey whole heartedly welcomed the new shelter, saying that he often saw patrons of the bus service getting soaked waiting on buses in Carlingford.

“It would be great now to see this process being replicated along bus routes around Dundalk,” a point which chairman Declan Breatnach reiterated.

Cllr Maeve Yore was informed that the stop is wheelchair accessible.

Cllr Tomás Sharkey was also told that the shelters werefunded through Interreg.
