Local Fianna Fáil County Councillor Cormac Devlin highlighted the appalling state of Clonkeen Road and asked when this will be addressed by the Council.
To ask the Manager, while I welcome the publication of the Road Maintenance Programme for 2005, when Clonkeen Road will be re-surfaced. This road is in much need of repair due to the high volume of traffic on it daily?
The section of Clonkeen Road from the N-11 to Beech Park Road is being resurfaced as part of the Road Restoration Programme 2005. This constitutes over 60% of the length of the road. This work is currently being carried out (between 31/5/2005 and 3/6/2005).
Additional drainage works, new kerbs and footpaths are required on the remainder of the road from Beech Park Road to Kill Lane before this section can be resurfaced.
UP-DATE: These works have all been completed except for the bus bays that Cllr. Devlin raised and asked that they be reinstated.
