One of the busiest stretches of roads in the region, the N84 Galway to Headford road at Curraghline has made no progress in its priority listing for road projects by Transport Infrastructure Ireland.
A Galway county councillor claims that motorists using this route may have to wait a decade before upgrade works are carried out on this notorious stretch of road.
Independent cllr James Charity raised the issue at a recent meeting of the Athenry Ornamore Municipal District.
Speaking to Midwest News today the councillor outlined his concern that the upgrade works to the N84 at this location may be stalled until the Galway city ring road is under construction, which is likely to be a decade away.
Galway county council has submitted an application to the TII for a 13.5 million euro upgrade of the Curraghline, however, council officials say the application is “in the queue” and so to date has made no progress.
