No HGV parking while waiting for the ferry!

By Dan Walsh

Rosslare Europort has issued an information statement requesting truck drivers and hauliers not to park their vehicles in neighbouring villages while waiting for access to Rosslare Europort for ferry departure deadlines.

“The villages (presumably a reference to Kilrane and Tagoat) are residential and are not available for parking day or not,” says the information leaflet that is endorsed by TFI (Transport for Ireland) and Iarnród Éireann.

It is suggested that drivers waiting for a ferry departure should park their vehicle at Gorey Service Station, Ballyellin, on the M11, or at Barntown Service Station, at Larkin’s Cross near Wexford town!

In further news, Cllr Ger Carthy has announced works that are about to commence or be completed within the next two weeks. They include;

Installation of water filled barriers between the entrance to Murphy’s Supermarket and St Marys Terrace.

Installation of the double yellow lines on the opposite side of the road from St. Marys Terrace. Burning off existing road markings on Kilrane Link Road and paint the new line marking to facilitate temporary HGV parking x 20.
Temporary corriboard signs will be erected to alert HGV’s that there is parking available on the link road. These will be made permanent as time allows. Further works in addition to those above will also be carried out with outline details of these works becoming available in the coming days.
