One week to decide future of town

Arklow Town Council has given residents of the town one week to have their say on plans that will radically transform the main street.

In a flyer posted out to households this week, the council has outlined its plans for the town and given residents until February 8th to have their say.

Residents can email the acting town clerk Michael McNamara at or write to Arklow Town Council, Avoca River House, North Quay, Arklow.

The plans will see the street reduced to a single lane of traffic with a significant widening of the footpaths. Trees and other greenery will also be added under the proposals.

There will also be eight additional zebra crossings added to improve pedestrian safety.
