Oughterard to Bunakill overlay works concerns – Ó Cuív
Fianna Fáil TD for Galway West Éamon Ó Cuív is seeking assurances from Galway County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland that funding will be provided for essential overlay works on the Oughterard to Bunakill (3/4 of the way to Maam Cross ) section of the N59 this year.
Deputy Ó Cuív wants to ensure that the resurfacing works are completed before the end of 2017.“The N59 is the main route from Connemara into Galway city and further afield. Upgrade works on various parts of the road have been in the pipeline for some time and I am seeking confirmation from Galway County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland to ensure that resurfacing on the stretch between Oughterard and Bunakill is carried out before the end of the year”, explained Deputy Ó Cuív.
