Why is roundabout foliage such a mess?

| 15/08/2019

I drive by the Hurley’s roundabout on a daily basis and I’ve noticed that it’s quite unkempt/overgrown with vegetation, and the TV monitors/screens haven’t worked in some time. Isn’t this roundabout still sponsored by DMS? If not, shouldn’t the NRA or another company maintain it better as the overgrowth does hinder adequate visibility?

Auntie’s answer: Yes, the roundabout in question is overgrown, but that is being dealt with, as I can attest to having passed by there this week. A National Roads Authority official confirmed that a new company is taking “ownership” of the roundabout, so DMS is no longer responsible for its upkeep.

Though the NRA is not ready to identify the new company, the authority is working with it “to cut back the overgrowth, so it does not impede visibility”. As part of the new look, the TV monitors will be removed. I have also been assured that the trimming will be completed “very soon”.

    Hopefully the new company isn’t using the same company that’s being used for the roundabout at King’s Gym.
