Michael Ring, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has had it confirmed to him that work on the N59 in the Kilbride section of the Greenway is expected to commence before the end of the year.
Minister Ring had contacted Fred Barry from the National Roads Authority in relation to the completion of this section of the Greenway.
“I am very anxious that this work would start before the end of the year,” the Minister said. “I am delighted to learn that that this work has gone out to tender. I will monitor this, and as soon as the tender is selected I will put whatever pressure on that I can, to get this work started as quickly as possible to complete the Kilbride to Newport part of the N59, which will also deal with the problem with the Greenway.”
