Callaghan welcomes plans to realign N61

Fine Gael councillor Liam Callaghan has welcomed news that plans for the realignment of the N61 Tulsk to Clashaganny route are progressing to the public consultation phase.

The proposed project will see the 4km route widened and realigned, a move which Cllr. Callaghan said would improve road safety.

“This project will improve road safety on a stretch of road that is one of the most dangerous and cumbersome sections of road for both motorist and local residents,” he said.

“This consultation (plans available to view until November 30th) will allow the general public to make observations and amendments of the identified route. It will be of particular interest to local residents, landowners and daily users of this route”.

Cllr Callaghan is advising anybody with an interest in this project to view the plans on display in Áras an Contae, Roscommon and to make written observations or submissions prior to December 16th.
