Work to begin on Roscommon town enhancement

Roscommon County Council has confirmed that works will commence on Roscommon’s Public Realm enhancement project next Monday (March 8th).

The project is supported through Project Ireland 2040 as part of the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) from Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and with matched funding from Roscommon County Council, and the project application was supported by Roscommon Town Team and Roscommon Chamber of Commerce.

  It will focus on further enhancement of the attractiveness and sustainability of the town centre. The investment is for Main Street and The Square will include a revised traffic layout, new wider granite footpaths, upgraded links to carparks and lighting, as well as new, shared spaces and planting. The project will also include new signage directing people to the town centre and carparks.

The works will initially commence at the top of Goff Street, with a new essential sewer and storm water diversion.

A road closure will be in place from March 8th, to April 16th, from Athlone Road to the junction of Main Street at the AIB bank. The construction works will be carried out by P&D Lydon Contractors from Cong, Co. Mayo and will take place over a twelve-month period.

Roscommon County Council says it regrets any inconvenience the works will cause.

Updates will be available throughout the project on Roscommon County Council’s website and social media channels.
