Public consultation on N61 rescheduled – Naughten



Minister Denis Naughten has welcomed confirmation of the rescheduled date for the public consultation process which is to take place in relation to the N61 between Ballymurray and Knockcroghery. The original date was postponed due to recent snow and will now take place on Tuesday, 20th of March.

  “This forms part of the Planning & Design of the N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery Road Project,” explained Minister Naughten. “The section referred to is 7.5km long and stretches from Newtown to Galey, south of Knockcroghery village.

  “Traffic volumes on the road between Roscommon and Athlone have doubled since the motorway opened and this project is part of Government plans to improve access through the county to Athlone with further plans to see the N61 from Boyle to Athlone upgraded to a much safer standard,” explained Minister Naughten.

  The Constraints Study Public Consultation will take place in Knockcroghery Community Centre on Tuesday, 20th of March from 12 noon until 7.30 pm.
