Galway East TD and Minister for Rural Affairs Seán Canney has received confirmation that the tender for road realignment at Twenty Minute Hill on the N83 Tuam to Dunmore Road will be published in the coming weeks.
Minister Canney said: “This section of road has been subject to a stop-go system of traffic flow since November 2018.
“There have been six major accidents and one death at this section and it has been impossible for a lorry and a car to pass each other safely.
“With the publication of the tender in the coming weeks, I expect works to begin later in the summer.
“This road has become a very busy access route to the N17 motorway and motorists have suffered long delays over the last two years as a result of the stop-go system.”
