Safety work to begin on Scramogue cross next week

Work is to get underway to improve safety on the Scramogue crossroads on the N5 near Strokestown.

The R371 Rooskey to Ballyleague regional road staggers the national primary route and has been the scene of a number of crashes.

Roadstone has been awarded the contract and work is due to get underway in the next week.

Local Councillor Tom Crosby who has campaigned for increased safety in the area describes what it will involve.
