325 thousand euro allocated to Fahy Road in Ballinasloe
Galway Bay fm newsroom – 325 thousand euro has been allocated to the development of Fahy Road in Ballinasloe.
The works will be part of a county-wide 3 year roads programme.
However, Fahy Road has been prioritised as the number one project in Ballinasloe meaning it will be the first project to get underway in the area.
The 2 and a half kilometre road links the Kilconnell-Cappataggle road to the Aughrim-Kilconnell road.
Ballinasloe Councillor Tim Broderick says the road is well populated and residents there have had to deal with a poor quality road for many years now.
He says it’s the only deficient road in a network of good quality roads in the area. More on this story at 11…

O’ Cuiv calls for special fund to raise roads in remote coastal areas
Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway West TD Eamon O’ Cuiv is calling for a special fund to raise roads in remote coastal areas.
Speaking in the Dáil, he said some areas are impassable at high tide – and this problem is only going to get worse into the future.
He acknowledged some places along the coast are recognised as islands because it happens every day – but many other areas are not.
Deputy O’ Cuiv accepted some people think the required spend is too big when it concerns such a small number of people.
But he argued once the work is done, it’s done forever – and the value is there for what amounts to small money.
