New signage in Athlone town as work restarts on Church Street

New signs and traffic lights improvements are planned for Athlone town centre this month in order to help ease issues around continuing work at Church Street in the town.

The process of turning the busy thoroughfare one way has resumed since yesterday with work continuing between 7pm and 3am Monday to Thursday.

This month’s meeting of the Athlone Municipal District was told a letter of intent has issued to the preferred contractor and it’s hoped a letter of acceptance will issue following the required ‘standstill period.’


Once this process is complete a commencement date for the substantial works of making the street one way will begin.
