Mayo county council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland are at present testing different road barriers on the Castlebar road outside Foxford (the N58).

In the Umoon area about 2 km outside the town there are significant drops either side of a newly resurfaced road and many road users have expressed their concerns over the lack of any barriers that might prevent a vehicle dropping a couple of meters should it come off the road in ice or frost.

Local Fine Gael councillor Neil Cruise told Midwest News today about the present testing of barriers to ensure that the safest option is installed along this very busy stretch of main road linking Ballina to Castlebar.

 He said he expects the barriers to be in place before next winter.
