The Main Contract for the Realignment of the N26 Foxford to Swinford road at Cloongullane Bridge has been awarded by Mayo County Council to BAM Civil Ltd.
The project is managed by the Mayo National Roads Office and includes the realignment of 1.8km of road.
A key aspect of the project is the construction of a new bridge over the environmentally sensitive River Moy to replace the existing stone arch bridge and the project will include sections of the road that approach Cloongullane Bridge.
Works get underway this month and will be complete by the summer of 2022.
Acting Chief Executive of MCC Peter Duggan says he is delighted to have the works begin on this highly anticipated project. The project will vastly improve the day-to-day commutes for road users.
