Taoiseach doesn’t know when N4/N5 will be upgraded

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has confirmed the N4 and N5 will be upgraded – but he has been unable to indicate when construction will begin.

In the Dáil today, Fianna Fáil TD Eugene Murphy asked him if improvements of the Sligo and Westport roads from Dublin would be included in the forthcoming capital plan.

There are hopes the N4 will be improved between Mullingar and Sligo and the N5 between Scramogue and Ballaghaderreen.


The Taoiseach gave this response to the Roscommon-Galway TD.
