€20,000 has been allocated for the Pound Street junction in Edgeworthstown.
The road surface at the junction is to be ungraded and Cllr Paul Ross (FG) has welcomed the developments.
“This junction was particularly bad at the traffic lights and it is a key route to a number of industries located in the town with a lot of lorries on this road daily,” he added.
“The Council was waiting on works to be completed by Irish Water but with no sign of this happening it makes sense that the junction be upgraded as soon as possible.”
Cllr Ross went on to say that the junction served as an entrance route to the town and it would have been an unacceptable situation to have left it in the condition that it is currently in.
“I am delighted that the works will be completed in the coming weeks,” the local area representative in Legan added.
“This together with the works that is ongoing on footpaths on Pound Street will ensure that the town of Edgeworthstown will become more enhanced.”
