Galway East TD Seán Canney has welcomed the inclusion of the N67 Ballindereen to Kinvara road as part of the €136 million announced today in the Capital Investment for National Road re-alignment scheme. The N67 is a notorious stretch of road and its inclusion is a programme positive move.
‘The funding announced today for the N67 is one of 11 schemes announced nationally.
‘The project consists of road re-alignment for approximately 3 km between Ballindereen and Kinvara. The project cost is approximately €5.5 million. The planning process is complete and the CPO process is well in hand.
‘Negotiations are on-going with the 44 landowners affected by the re-alignment
‘The tender for this project is expected to be complete by the end of summer with the successful contractor commencing construction on the ground by the end of 2018.
‘This project is long overdue and I acknowledge the input of Galway County Council and the local councillors in keeping this project on the agenda”.
