Balla by pass now open

Journey times to “The West” will be reduced further with the opening of the Ballaghadeerren By Pass.

The 13.5k stretch of the N5 was officially opened by An Taoiseach on Tuesday.

For Boyle motorists the new road brings Knock Airport within a half hours drive and Castlebar within 55 minutes.

The €14m stretch of single carriageway road has been completed ahead of schedule.
