A local Councillor says that something has to be done about flooding on the access road to Allergan and Portwest in Westport.

Independent Cllr Christy Hyland says the access road flooded again yesterday, following heavy rain as part of Storm Diana yesterday.

He says that once Allergan found out that the road was flooded, they provided access to the two sites by opening up a road at the rear of their plant.

However Cllr Hyland says the situation must be resolved, as it has occurred on a number of occasions over the past few years.

He says that both Allergan and Portwest are major employers and it is not good enough to have the access road to the plants flooded.

Cllr Hyland says employees were worried about getting home from work or getting into work yesterday because of the issue.

He told Midwest News he has been in touch with the Executive of Mayo County Council about the matter.
