Concerns in Carlow for Milford bridge as sat-navs direct trucks to travel that route

HGV’s and other large vehicles are causing traffic chaos at Milford Bridge in Carlow and it’s all because of their Sat Nav systems.

That’s according to local councillor Michael Doran who raised the issue at this week’s meeting of Carlow County Council.

He says they’re being directed over that bridge by their Sat Nav systems despite the fact that there simply isn’t room.

Councillor Doran told KCLR news that the council is now going to see if they can have that route removed.

There is already a weight restriction on the bridge along with signage but Councillor Doran says perhaps something should be done to make that signage clearer.

And he told KCLR News that there is also the possibility of serious damage being done to the bridge.
