Three tenders have been submitted to the Galway County council to construct a bypass for Moycullen.
The council will assess the tenders in the coming weeks before making a recommendation to Transport Infrastructure Ireland. Work is expected to commence in the early autumn.
Galway Fine Gael senator Seán Kyne said this was “another important milestone” in the Moycullen Bypass project. “We will soon have a contract awarded,” he said, “and works starting on the bypass which will make Moycullen less congested, safer, and remove hundreds of heavy goods vehicles from the town.”
