Preferred route for N55 realignment between Ballymahon and Athlone to be revealed next week

The preferred route of a major realignment of the N55 between Ballymahon and Athlone will be revealed next week.

Homeowners along the National primary route will get a chance to see the final preferred route after months of public consultations and several other routes which were not deemed suitable.

The open day at Tubberclaire Community Center this day next week takes place between 2pm and 8pm and will be attended by members of Westmeath County Council.

It’s expected that all affected landowners will be contacted this week in advance of the plan being unveiled officially.

Local Councillor Tom Farrell told Shannonside FM that no-one has any idea yet what the preferred route is yet.
