Galway Daily news Four day roadworks commencing today disrupting Tuam traffic

Roadworks on three separate areas of Galway county have gotten underway this morning.

People travelling in the areas of Loughrea, Ballymoe and Lackagh can expect traffic to be affected by these roadworks over the next few weeks.

At Ballymoe Galway County Council has ordered resurfacing roadworks of the N60 at the border with Roscommon.

It’s expected that these works will take four weeks to complete.

The work involved in this project includes planing out and reinstating the surface of the road, road markings, access and accommodation works, and drainage works.

A traffic management plan will be in place for the duration of the works being carried out by Roadstone Ltd.

Similar work is taking place on the Galway to Roscommon road at An Ruan Mór crossroads at Lackagh.

These works are expected to take five weeks to complete, with the contract going to Westport based Gibbons Building & Civil Engineering Ltd.

And lastly traffic to the south of Loughrea will be affected by resurfacing overlay roadworks on the R351 at Kylebrack, Loughrea.

Work began at 7am this morning and the county council has said that a Stop/Go system will be operating to manage traffic over the next three days.

“As a consequence users of this road are requested to expect delays and as such should allow additional time for their journeys.”

The contract for these works has been awarded to Lagan Asphalt Ltd.
