The project will be complete by August it is hoped after beginning in January 2020

Leitrim County Council hopes the public realm enhancement works will be complete on Main Street in Carrick-on-Shannon by the end of next month.

The local authority has announced revised traffic arrangements to allow the overall project  to be complete by the middle of August.

The public realm enhancement scheme in Carrick-on-Shannon began in January 2020, but Covid-19 as well as issues with contractors have seen the project, which was initially hoped to be completed by December 2020, reach its conclusion this August.

Works resumed on the project in February following the post-Christmas lockdown and new traffic arrangements to allow for the completion of the Main Street works are due to come into force from next week.

Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), except those with deliveries, will be diverted away from the town centre and diversions will be posted at Drumsna, the Attirory roundabout and Leitrim Village.

The Main Street/Bridge Street junction at the clock will also have to be closed to traffic but Quay Road and Quay Street will allow two-way traffic so that access is maintained to St Georges Terrace.

However as a result, on-street parking will be suspended on Quay Road and Quay Street.

There will also be no traffic on Bridge Street as the Clock Junction will be closed to traffic. Deliveries to businesses on Bridge Street will have to be made from the bridge end of the street.

The Council has confirmed that the new arrangements will come into force from next Tuesday and last until the end of May and they are asking for patience on "this final push to get this transformative project complete".
