Mayo County Council and the Road Design Office has agreed to meet residents at Breaffy Castlebar whose homes are located adjacent to the new bridge under construction along the new N5 dual carriageway.
Two of the residents directly impacted by the ongoing extensive construction works had sought a meeting with the local authority and the contractors working on the road two weeks ago. They have now been given a time and date, of Monday next to meet on site.
The residents spoke to Midwest News and claimed that the construction of the bridge at Breaffy, along the new dual carriageway that will run from Turlough to Westport, has resulted in a year and a half of total intrusion on their lives.
They say they are distraught and sickened by the impact of the construction works on their home lives.
There is quarrying and rock blasting taking place, continuous lorry movements and dust, noise and disruption from 7am to 7pm daily, for 18 months now and is set to continue for some time.
The residents told Midwest News today they welcome an opportunity to outline first hand to the the local authority and the contractor Wills BAM the impact of the works on their lives.
