I have 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.
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 point in the road and it has been impossible for a lorry and a car to pass each other safely.
The 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.
With the publication of the tender in the coming weeks, I expect works to begin later in the summer.
