I have received confirmation that the contract for the road re-alignment has gone to tender for the Twenty-Minute Hill on the N83 Dunmore to Tuam Road.
‘This is a notorious stretch of road and has been reduced to a single lane with temporary traffic lights for over 18 months’.
The tender package has been approved to go to tender by TII and the National Roads Design office in Galway is managing the tender process.
The expectation is that following the tender and evaluation process, work will begin on site this year.
‘I welcome this progress on this stretch of road which has increased volume of cars following the re-opening of the motorway to Tuam’
