A Claremorris Municipal District Councillor has called on Mayo County Council to identify a scheme of local roads that could be included in a pilot project for more substantial road resurfacing.
Fianna Fail Cllr Damien Ryan made the call at the monthly meeting of Claremorris Municipal District.
He says that at present a wet mix and a macadam is being applied to national and regional roads, as opposed to tar and chips.
He says this is a longer last mix on roads and it’s something that should be considered for local roads.
Cllr Ryan says while it does cost more to apply, there wouldn’t be a need for as much road maintenance afterwards, so the cost would balance out.
