Councillors in the Ballina area have again expressed their concerns that there are no improvements being currently planned for the N26 Ballina to Foxford road.
At the monthly meeting of Ballina Municipal District today Fine Gael Councillor John O’Hara proposed that TII (Transport Infrastructure Ireland) come down to Ballina to meet with the business community and local representatives to see the state of the road themselves at first hand.
However, Councillor O’Hara’s proposal didn’t get unanimous support.
There are currently 2 councillors who make representation to the TII as SPC road members.
They are councillors Seamus Weir and Annie Mae Reape.
The director of public services tom Gilligan said there is no difference in making representation from the members going to Dublin or the TII coming to Ballina asking questions.
TII have been previously been invited down to Ballina regarding this matter but failed to do so.
A delegation from Mayo County Council along with the two SPC members will be meeting with TII in Dublin on November 18th
Cllr. O’Hara says TII need to come down to experience what the situation is like at first hand.
