“Massive tailbacks” in Roscam traffic need a solution Cllr says

Galway Daily news

Solutions are needed for the traffic gridlock in the east side of Galway City caused by active travel works a city councillor has said.

Councillor Alan Cheevers said that there are “massive tailbacks” in Roscam caused by the works, and that local residents have been left extremely frustrated.

Works should not commence before 9am in the morning he said, until the rush hour period is over, to avoid people being late for work and children being late for school.

“I understand works have to proceed, but residents must be considered,” Councillor Alan Cheevers said, asking for a solution to be provided by next week.

This is also a long term planning issue, he added, with “large scale developments and one access point” that create traffic congestion.
