The ongoing delays in progressing works on the R336 Galway to Rossaveal road are unacceptable – that’s according to Galway West TD Eamon O’Cuiv.
It’s over 12 years since this road project was announced, and 6 possible corridors were selected but a preferred route has not yet been identified.
Deputy O’’Cuiv says this is having a negative impact on the area, as no planning permissions are being granted in Cois Fharraige, along the six corridors which remain under consideration for the new road.
The Fianna Fail TD says the current R336 from Galway to Rossaveal is totally inadequate for the volumes of traffic using the road, and urgently needs to be upgraded.
He says the time has come for a preferred route to be chosen, and the Transport Minister Shane Ross should allocate the funding to do this immediately,
Deputy O’Cuiv also believes the road should be constructed in tandem with the proposed Galway city bypass.
