An Bord Pleanala has again pushed back the date for a decision on planning permission for a new bridge at Cloongullane, near Swinford.

The decision is not just disappointing but outrageous, according to Mayo FG Senator Michelle Mulherin.

It's almost two years since an oral hearing took place into plans for a replacement bridge at Cloongullane - an accident blackspot on the N26 - yet no progress has since been made on the matter.

The planning application is still with An Bord Pleanala, and it was expected a decision might be made by the end of last month, but that date is now being further delayed, and  there's no indication when a decision will be made.

Senator Mulherin says it's not good enough that environmental concerns are holding up such a vital piece of infrastructure, when there are no objections from the National Parks & Wildlife or the fisheries.
