Locals are being invited to make their views known on the N4 Mullingar to Longford (Roosky ) road scheme, with a series of public consultation exhibitions to take place next week.
Westmeath County Council and Longford County Council in partnership with the National Roads Authority announced on Wednesday that they are inviting people to attend the public consultation exhibitions on the emerging preferred route corridor for the scheme.
This scheme will upgrade approximately 52km of the N4 National Primary Route between the recently completed N4 Dromod-Roosky Bypass and the N4 Mullingar Bypass. The scheme is being designed to bypass Newtown Forbes, Longford, Edgeworthstown, Rathowen and Ballinalack. It will improve road safety and will reduce travel times along this section of the N4.
Three public exhibitions have been arranged. On Monday May 11 the exhibition will be at the Longford Arms Hotel, Longford from 2pm until 8pm. On Tuesday May 12 the exhibition will move to the Park House Hotel in Edgeworthstown, and will again be open from 2pm until 8pm. On Wednesday May 13 the exhibition will be at the Mullingar Park Hotel in Mullingar, again from 2pm until 8pm.
Local people are invited to attend the exhibitions and make their views known by completing the consultation questionnaire or by writing directly to the National Roads Design Office, Culleen Beg, Mullingar, Co Westmeath.
