TII designing safety measures for ‘dangerous’ N4 junctions

The design for enhanced safety measures at N4 between Boyle and Carrick-on-Shannon is being undertaken by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) consultants in Donegal.

The project involves establishing new turning-lanes for the Cootehall and Croghan junctions, which have caused more than 22 crashes since 2000, according to campaigners.

After a public meeting, the group, together with officials at Roscommon County Council and local politicians, met and secured funding from TII to install turning-lanes on the section of the road.

Eugene Dwyer, a senior engineer with the council, says they have handed over their feasibility study to TII’s roads design team in Donegal.
