Failure to plan improvements this year for a Quin Rd have caused “a lot of disappointment”.
Road works on the Ballyhickey Rd in Quin were requested by Cllr Joe Cooney (FG) at a meeting of the Killaloe Municipal District. “The road is in a very poor condition,” he highlighted. The motion was seconded by Cllr Alan O’Callaghan (FF).
Consideration to include the road in the 2022 roadworks programme will be made, senior executive engineer Niamh Madden responded, however she confirmed that it was not on the current programme. Essential maintenance would be completed on the road, she added.
O’Callaghans Mills representative Cooney said there was “a lot of disappointment” on the road’s absence from this year’s programme, “as we’re all well aware a lot of roads didn’t make it”.
He acknowledged that the road was not a particularly long stretch but that it had over 20 houses located on it. “I am hopeful that it could be done later this year if the funding is available, if not it definitely should be on the 2022 programme.
