One of the most controversial events in the history of Arklow is set to commence this coming Tuesday as the new one way system comes into force on the Main Street.
Arklow town council will bring in a three month trial of the project.
From Tuesday motorists coming across the bridge from Ferrybank will no longer be able to turn right up Main Street but will instead be obliged to turn left down Lower Main Street.
A Leaflet has been delivered to every home and business in Arklow and surrounding areas and reads as follows.
