The ongoing traffic congestion on the Foxford side of Ballina looks likely to be relieved with initial plans now in place to provide a link road from the N26 on the Foxford side of the town to the N59 Crossmolina road. That’s according to Ballina Fianna Fail councillor Annie Mae Reape
The councillor says there was some welcome news for road users in the Ballina area, when members of Mayo County Council met with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) earlier this week.
Funding for the the first phase of the construction is set to be in place by early 2020.
While construction of the new stretch of road and new bridge at Cloongullane on the N26 between Foxford and Swinford – should get under in 2020, just a few months away.
