Letter to the Editor: Road signs go missing on Ballycotton Coastal road


Driving this journey, travelling due East on the Whitegate Road, your problems start at Inch Cross. On arrival at this crossroads from the Midleton road, there is no crossroads sign on your approach. There is no road sign for Ballycotton, no sign for Whitegate and Upper Aghada or a sign leading you back towards Midleton. However, there are two new signs that will guide you to Inch Strand from two different directions.

The next junction is Inch Church cross, which is a Y junction and there are no signs to indicate this on approach. However, it does have two lovely new signs directing you to Ballycotton and Whitegate. I asked a local resident, as to who has the right of way at this junction and he got bit agitated as dare I say, this seems to be a local dispute!
