A public meeting will be held tonight Thursday November 8th to discuss concerns relating to two junctions on the N4 at Ardcarne between Boyle and Carrick on Shannon.
Residents of the area have been campaigning to have works undertaken on the Cootehall and Eastersnow junctions to make them safer following a spate of accidents over the last number of years.
An online petition has opened to “highlight the danger of these junctions on the N4 to the TII NRA and Roscommon County Council and demand immediate action to be taken to advert any serious fatalities” according to the organisers.
To date over 700 people have signed the petition which you can access here
The meeting will take place in Ardcarne Park tonight commencing at 9pm.
The safety measures at the junctions were raised yesterday afternoon by Deputy Eamon Scanlon and Deputy Eugene Murphy in Dail Eireann.
