Sligo City Loop Signage Project


Sligo City Loop Signage Project

Sligo County Council

The Sligo City Loop is a new designated circulatory loop around the inner city of Sligo that is helping tourists and visitors to navigate around this busy urban area.

The new strategic circulatory loop was developed to direct traffic around Sligo’s city centre whilst avoiding the heavily trafficked streets through the city core. The circulatory route is largely signed in one direction (clockwise) to account for sections involving one-way streets. Each junction on the loop has a unique junction number, which makes it easy for businesses, service providers and visitors to use.

The project complements existing directional signage, and employs a combination of text strings and symbols to direct traffic to the city’s main parking facilities, tourist and civic attractions, third level education centres, and the Sligo Regional Hospital. The loop and its signage also simplify the process of getting to and from the main national primary road network including the N4, N15 and N16. The new signage scheme was developed in line with national standards for orbital route signage.
