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 this week 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.
Independent Councillor Mark Duffy says before he was born there was plans for a proper road in to Ballina and this still hasn’t moved forward.
A delegation from Mayo County Council along with the two SPC members will be meeting with TII in Dublin on November 18th.
Cllr. Duffy says that while the new ring road from Castlebar to Westport is welcomed news it is now time for North Mayo to get proper infrastructure in place.
