Council hopeful Longford’s Great-Water Street will re-open to one-way traffic within a week

Longford County Council is hopeful that a one-way system will be in place in the coming days to allow traffic flow on Great water street in the town once again.

Demolition work began yesterday on a number of buildings damaged by a fire and which resulted in a complete closure to traffic on the busy street.

It was hoped that the work would be complete before ‘Black Friday’ sales and in a statement to Shannonside FM has confirmed that the Council is unsure exactly when the demolition works will be complete, but they are hopeful of a one way system being in place within the next week.
