Circular Road resurfacing works to commence

It has been confirmed that resurfacing works on the Circular Road in Roscommon town will commence in April and are set to be completed by the summer.

Cathaoirleach of Roscommon Municipal District Cllr Marty McDermott told the Roscommon People this week that the works have been given the go-ahead and are expected to be completed in three stages in coming weeks.

“These works are very much welcome. A number of people have been in contact with me about the condition of the Circular Road in recent months including people living and working in Roscommon and farmers making their way to and from the mart,” Cllr McDermott said.

“I’m delighted to confirm that resurfacing will commence in April and will be completed in three stages before the summer. The work will take place at night so there will be no inconvenience to people during the day”.

Cllr McDermott also provided a positive update on proposed footpath works between Hannon’s Hotel and the Golf Links Road.

“This has gone to Part 8 and members will vote on this in due course,” he said.

“I’m delighted to say that is going in the right direction”.

Road safety measures at The Walk have also been given a green light with the allocation of €30,000 under the Adopted Roads Programme. The Fianna Fáil councillor said it is hoped that the installation of speed ramps in the area will now commence in June.
