Work will begin again on Church Street in Athlone in January

Work will begin again on Church Street in Athlone around the 7th of January following a break to allow for Christmas trade.

Preparatory work began on the street for the new one-way system in November, and it’s hoped that work will be finished by the end of January.

It’s likely that most of the work in January will once again take place at night so as to minimise traffic disruption but some day work could be involved to0wards the end of the month.
