Proposals to allocate €176,800 for repairs to the road from Mullagh Cross to Kiltormer and €260,000 for the road at Clonlahan have been welcomed.

Galway East TD and Minister for the Diaspora and International Development Ciaran Cannon said that the total investment of almost €440,000 would greatly improve the local road network.

The Minister said: “I am very pleased to note that under the 2019 road program, Ballinasloe Municipal District are proposing to allocate some €260,000 for road repairs to the L4300 at Clonlahan and that Loughrea area have also proposed allocating some €176,800 on the same road which between Mullagh Cross and Kiltormer.

“I am aware for some time, from constituents, of the issues pertaining to the road from Mullagh Cross to Kiltormer and particularly with respect to its unevenness at a number of points.

“The problem appears to be especially acute in Clonlahan townland with a number of waves, dips and humps that oblige motorists to slow down in advance.

“This is also a busy thoroughfare used by parents accessing St Brendan’s NS in Mullagh and members of the local communities in Mullagh, Killoran and in Kiltormer.”

Minister Cannon added that it will greatly enhance road conditions for local users.
