Road Works Programme 2013

The 2013 Road Works Programme for the Comeragh Area will commence shortly. Cllr O Ryan recently brought the Head of Roads at WCC on a tour of the constituency paying particular attention to the roads in the Nire Valley and surrounding areas due to continuous deterioration. The engineer also saw at first hand the destruction done by water to these roads. The allocation has fallen from €14 million to €10 million in recent years. Sections of roads in the following areas are scheduled to have strengthening work carried out - Ballymacarbry Village, Russelstown, Silaheen Upper, Toureen, Lyre, stretches of the following will undergo surface dressing - Castlereagh, Croughateskin, Moanyarha towards Steel Bridge and also structural work to both Walls in Ballymacarbry. The Roads section has prioritised these areas. The amount of work planned for here, reinforces Cllr O Ryan’s views that this area’s roads suffer disproportionally during inclement winters. He has been calling for continued work in this area at county council level since election and makes no apology for being repetitive and vocal in this regard. He has also asked the Director of Services, to make the filling of pot holes in roads not selected, a priority and the structural repairs at both Creggane and Ballymacarbry.
