I propose, with your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, to take Questions Nos. 33 and 34 together.
As regards the provision of traffic light signals at the two crossroads, the background to this was given by me in reply to a question in the House on 5th December last. A proposal to accept a tender for the supply and installation of the light signals was submitted to my Department by Galway County Council in February last. It was necessary to clarify certain aspects of this proposal with the county council and I expect now that a decision will issue very shortly. Subject to approval to the accepted tender, it would be a matter for the county council to proceed with the provision of the signals.
Regarding accidents at the two intersections, I am informed that in the six years ended 31st December, 1968, the number of accidents reported to the Gardaí were 29 accidents at Moneenageisha Cross, one of which was fatal, and 41 accidents at New Cemetery Cross, none of which was fatal.
