Major improvements to bumpy Clonlahan Road welcomed

Recent resurfacing works along the Clonlahan Road near Kiltormer have been welcomed.

Minister Ciaran Cannon said he was delighted at the news that the works had been completed, describing the section of road as ‘very uneven’ with a number of ‘notorious humps and dips’.

This part of the Clonlahan Road, from the junction that leads to both Kiltormer and Killimor and just beyond the turn for Bettaville townlands, has been completely resurfaced.

The Galway East TD said: “The works have also ensured that issues relating to a couple of other uneven sections nearer to the Spinning Wheel pub and the junction for Springfield and Killoran townlands have also been addressed.

“In addition, I’m pleased to see that the installation in recent months of lighting at the Shrine in Englishtown has enhanced safety along that section of road by ensuring greater visibility at night for both pedestrians and motorists.

Minister Cannon added: “‘This is a busy route used by parents accessing St Brendan’s NS in Mullagh and members of the local communities in Mullagh, Killoran and Kiltormer and the road enhancement works will ensure both greater safety and an improved driving environment for all.”
