Transport Minister Shane Ross is due to visit Co Sligo next month to officially launch three infrastructural developments in the county.
Contrary to earlier reports that Minister Ross would visit Sligo this Sunday, the Department of Transport has confirmed that the date will be Monday 25th February.
After decades of campaigning for a new road, the Minister will turn the sod to mark the official start of construction work on the new €100 million N4 Collooney to Castlebaldwin road.
This stretch of road has claimed over 20 lives in road collisions in recent years, and led to a number of white crosses being erected along the roadside to remember those fatally injured.
Minister Ross will also inspect two other major infrastructural projects on the day - the new Western Distributor Road and the Eastern Link Bridge in Sligo Town.
The three projects involved a total investment of some €220 million.
