Green light for two road safety projects

Cllr. Marty McDermott has welcomed confirmation of funding approval for two road safety projects he has been working on.

Speaking to the Roscommon People, Cllr. McDermott said that he is delighted to be able to inform local residents and motorists of the significant breakthrough.

He says funding has now been approved to address issues at Lisadurn Bridge (Roscommon), and on a hazardous stretch of road in the Clashaganny area.

Since being elected to Roscommon County Council, Cllr. McDermott has been lobbying for works to be carried out on a narrow road in the Cloonyogan townland (Clashaganny area). He says there has been an issue there for many years, pointing out that when two vehicles meet there, the situation has the potential to be dangerous. Cllr. McDermott says funding for a Passing Bay has now been approved and works will commence shortly.

Meanwhile, funding has also been approved for necessary resurfacing works, provision of signage, etc. at Lisadurn Bridge (Golf Links Road, Roscommon).

Cllr. McDermott: “These issues were raised with me during the local election canvass and I am delighted to have been able to deliver on them for the benefit of local residents”.

Cllr. McDermott said he wished to thank Roscommon County Council and particularly the relevant engineers for all their assistance and support.
