A ten year wait expected for Carrick on Shannon bypass

bypass-2016It’s likely to be another 10 years before Carrick on Shannon is bypassed.

Carrick on Shannon Chamber of Commerce says while businesses made a very strong case to the Transport Minister at a presentation in Dublin yesterday, there was little in terms of positive indications of forthcoming from Shane Ross.

President Colm Mc Grath says the expectations are not high but this is the beginning of a long campaign.
