Nope that's the other unconnected part of Churchyard Lane - its the small bit by the Silver Key (past the old sorting office) that's going to get hit and they think speed humps will solve it !.
I've done up a map (attached) - the red route is the traffic coming up the Well Road to the old roundabout which will now be replaced by traffic lights. Problem is that the queue is going to 'back up' on the Well Road, so drivers wanting to turn left at the lights onto Temple Hill/Boreenmanna Road are likely to choose the blue routes to cut through the Ardmahon/churchyard Lane residential area.
The photo attached shows Churchyard Lane coming from the Well Road - dead ahead would be the car parking for the Silver Key.
Speed bumps may slow the traffic slightly, but its the additional volume thats the problem and speed humps will have absolutely no effect.
