Taoiseach insists N4 will be upgraded

A Shannonside TD has said he’s been assured by the Taoiseach the N4 upgrade between Longford and Mullingar will be confirmed in the Capital Plan.

Fine Gael deputy Peter Burke said he spoke to Leo Varadkar last week and the Taoiseach acknowledged that improving this stretch of road network made perfect sense.

The proposed N4 Mullingar to Longford sheme will upgrade 50km of the National Primary Route between the Dromod-Roosky bypass and the Mullingar bypass.

The plan is due to be announced when the Government gather in Sligo on Friday for a special cabinet meeting.
