Calls for upgrades to Tuam roundabouts

Upgrading Tuam’s roundabouts on the approach to the town could help make it more inviting and improve its retail aspect a Galway TD has said.

Galway East TD Sean Canney says there is “huge potential” to enhance the town’s approaches in order to showcase Tuam, and that he has held discussions with the county council about this.

The Independent TD also said that Transport Infrastructure Ireland will be issuing protocols to allow such works to be carried out.

“Now is the time to grasp the initiative to ensure that we optimise all means available to promote the business potential for Tuam and as a great place to live in.

“The opening of the M17/M18 motorway and the Tuam by-pass has been a game-changer in terms of developing Tuam for future generations.”

“It has already been a factor in stimulating growth and investment for some of the town’s major employers.”

Further enhancing the town’s roundabouts could help improve the town’s “aspect” and make it more inviting as an “historic shopping centre” for people working in Tuam and others he concluded.
