Eugene’s call on Taoiseach Leo…

‘Give us timeframe on upgrading of N4 & N5’


Eugene Murphy TD has welcomed the fact that the Taoiseach has confirmed that upgrading of the N4 and N5 have been included in the capital plan – but the Fianna Fáil TD has called on Mr. Varadkar to put in place a definite timeframe for such works.

  Deputy Murphy raised the matter with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar during Questions on Promised Legislation in the Dáil.

  Taoiseach Leo Varadkar confirmed that the N4 and N5 will be upgraded – but he was unable to indicate when construction will begin.

  Deputy Murphy: “I welcome the fact that the Taoiseach confirmed that the upgrading of the N4 and the N5 are included in the capital plan. It is disappointing however that the Taoiseach was unable to provide a timeframe for these upgrading works and I hope that the profiling work which he referred to does not drag on indefinitely as these upgrades are part of a vital infrastructure for the West of Ireland.

  “I would like to see construction beginning as soon as possible,” said Deputy Murphy.
