Following his representations, Minister Frank Feighan has received an update from Roscommon County Council on proposed work on the Cootehall junction on the N4.
“The Council has made significant progress with landowners and has been in active correspondence with TII. TII required a revised feasibility report in light of agreed changes in design and this revised report detailing the required accommodation works and funding has been submitted. It was planned that the first phase will be to complete the accommodation works and the pavement rehab would follow on in phase 2 with funding under the Pavement Asset Repair and Renewal Scheme. In order to conform with current design specifications Roscommon County Council has to reach agreement on departure standards with TII and this process is currently progressing”.
“Tender documents for the accommodation works should be ready for advertisement by end of Q4 2020/Q12021 following the signing of legal agreements”.
