Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Lisnaskea Traffic & Car Parking
Lisnaskea is situated on the A34 Protected Route between Enniskillen and County Monaghan. Other roads of significant local importance link Lisnaskea with Brookeborough and Derrylin.
Localised congestion occurs in the town centre caused by conflict between through traffic, servicing traffic, parked vehicles and pedestrians. The northern approach to the town along the Maguiresbridge Road has restricted standards of horizontal and vertical alignment.
The Department intends to implement a programme of improvement works and traffic management measures to upgrade the existing road system and to improve pedestrian facilities, road safety and the local environment. A high priority within this programme will be afforded to improvements to the Maguiresbridge Road.
These will be carried out as and when resources permit.
Existing off-street public car parking facilities in the town are located at Fairgreen (85 spaces), the Mart site (50 spaces) and New Bridge Road (50 spaces). It is proposed to extend the existing car park at Fairgreen on land which is in the Department’s ownership.
The Department will continue to monitor the situation with regard to traffic, parking and accessibility during the Plan period and will expect adequate on site car parking to be provided as part of any significant development or redevelopment proposal in the town centre.
