Members of the Westport Electoral Area Committee this week expressed their concerns that works that are due to start in Kilbride and Knockbregga on the N59 Westport to Mulranny improvement scheme will have a negative impact on the Great Western Greenway into the summer season next year.

Staunton told the members that the Knockbregga and Kilbride stretch was ready to proceed in the very near future, and that tenders were being opened this week by the council for that stretch of road, and a nine month period of works was planned as the improvements were put in place. He told the members that it was hoped to have the approval for that stretch at the November meeting of the committee, and then at the full council meeting that month, with works starting after that.
