Galway Bay fm newsroom – The long awaited traffic calming scheme for Claregalway is set to go out to tender in the coming weeks.

The project was raised at a meeting of Athenry/Oranmore municipal district this week where officials advised work on the scheme would begin late next year.

A key part of the principal upgrade will be focused on surface water drainage and the road drainage system, with flooding problems continuing in the centre of Claregalway village.

The plan retains the left-turning lane in the village and the lights at the head of the Montiagh road, which will be synchronised with the other lights in the village.

It will also involve the extension of the footpath from the church to the schools, to join up with the existing footpath and an extension of the yellow box at the entrance to the Lakeview Estate.

More at 9 as local Independent councillor Jim Cuddy says work is due to begin in the final quarter of 2020….

This is one of a series of worldwide school strikes this year with a demonstration in March attracting 1.5 million protestors globally.

The ‘Fridays for Future’ movement began in August 2018, after 15 years old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks.

Galway Bay fm newsroom:

The Sinn Fein leader says concerns by residents in Oughterard over the direct provision system are legitimate.

Several hundred people have been peacefully picketing at the former Connemara Gateway Hotel, outside the town, since earlier this week, over fears it may be turned into a direct provision centre.

The group argues that Oughterard does not have the infrastructure or services in place to deal with a large influx of asylum seekers to the area.

Mary Lou McDonald argues the direct provision system has been disastrous.

She has also stated that Independent TD Noel Grealish should withdraw alleged controversial comments regarding African migrants while attending a public meeting this week.
