Irish Water is to provide extra traffic management on Friday and Sunday evenings in Charlestown, while work is ongoing on sewerage pipes in the town.
That was confirmed by local Sinn Fein Cllr Gerry Murray today.
Cllr Murray had contacted Irish Water to see if they could provide additional personnel to man the traffic management in the town, especially on Friday and Sunday evenings due to the sheer volume of traffic.
Irish Water confirmed they will do that and they will suspend works for the St Patrick’s Weekend, so that the parade can go ahead.
Cllr Murray also appealed to people to shop local, despite the ongoing works.
He also said that Irish Water hope to have finished the works in the next four weeks.
