Claims uncut Tipperary hedges impacting road surfaces

Its claimed that failing to properly maintain roadside hedges is a potential hazard to both road users and the road surface itself.

The issue was raised at this month’s meeting of the Thurles Templemore Municipal District were local representatives called on the council to do more to encourage landowners to tackle this.

Independent Councillor Eddie Moran says the District is ahead of schedule on its roads works programme and its a shame the hedgerow issue is causing problems
