Safety concerns will be raised at the meeting.

The Chairman of Roscommon County Council he hopes members can get some information on possible ways to prepare for the re-beginning of the N5 bypass project at a meeting tomorrow.

Elected members of the council, and some of the executive, are due to meet with Transport Infrastructure Ireland to discuss road issues in the county.

The stalling of the N5 Ballaghaderreen to Scramogue by-pass following the collapse of Roadbridge, and the shelving of the N61 Knockroghery by-pass due to 'budgetary constraints' are likely to be two main items for discussion.


Councillor Joe Murphy says members are hoping to get some more clarity on what can happen with the N5 project now, and they'll also be talking about the other schemes and ongoing safety issues.

''We're just looking for clarity on where we go, because we're delighted with the TII as regards the N5 and the funding that they've given up to now, but we just want clarity on where we go live. If there was a a way that we could have levers ready that when  two years or three years was up that we could be ready to go ready to move on with the project and have it shovel ready. That  would be a big issue, but there's a huge issue along all these roads as regards safety.''
