New landmark for Arklow

Motorists entering and leaving the town of Arklow at juction 20 of the M11 will be doing a double take this morning.

Late on Thursday night a new lighthouse feature was placed at the roundabout close to the former Hill’s garage.

The sponsor a roundabout scheme was introduced by Arklow Municipal District in 2017.

Linda McDonald of the Arklow Municipal District said “The sponsor a roundabout scheme has proved very popular and has made an improvement to the entry and exits to the town both for residents and visitors, our aim is to keep Arklow looking great.”

The project was assisted by ASL Safety and Training, Arklow Marine Services, Arklow Crane Hire and the Arklow Town Team.

Judging by the reaction of the motorists this morning who entered the roundabout it’s a thumbs up.
