The allocation of an additional €500,000 for repairs to local roads in the South Roscommon area has been welcomed by Cllr. John Naughten.
“While the funding won’t address the deficit in the road infrastructure completely, it is very welcome additional funding that will go some way to repairing some of the worst roads, particularly in the South Roscommon area.
“Roscommon County Council was successful in securing this funding following a meeting with my fellow elected representatives from the Athlone Municipal District at which Minister Shane Ross was in attendance, where we outlined the significant deterioration in the road infrastructure particularly in the south of the county,” Cllr. Naughten remarked.
