A Kilkelly based councillor has called for immediate clarification on the route of the proposed new N17 road from Knock to Collooney.

Councillor John Caulfield says it is completely unacceptable that householders/ businesses in the locality have been waiting fourteen years just to get information on the proposed route of a main road.

It is impacting on planning and development along the multiple routes that are being considered and the road as it stands remains a safety concern, with a number of fatal and serious collisions along it.

The project, being discussed since 2008, is being managed by the Sligo Regional Design Office. An emerging preferred route was due to be published last month (October), but has now been delayed again, into early next year.

Fianna Fail councillor John Caulfield has been telling Midwest News Editor Teresa O’Malley why people cannot  be expected to continue to wait for clarification on a preferred route after so many years…
