Motorists travelling on N55 warned to expect delays in Ballymahon this week

The delays are as a result of works taking place at Nally’s Corner in the middle of the town and at the Water Tower end of town beside the Athlone road junction.

Gas Networks Ireland are carrying out the works at Nally’s Corner, while the project at the Water Tower area is being carried out on behalf of Longford council to underground overhead power wires.
