27th February, 2015

Carlow Fine Gael TD, Pat Deering has this week received confirmation from Minister Paschal Donohoe that the NRA have allocated €500,000 for the construction of the long awaited Ballincarrig roundabout on the Wexford road.

“This is a significant improvement on this important stretch of road. The N80 is is the recognised Euro Route from Roslare to the midlands. This roundabout will be a strategic interchange on the future relief road, so as well as the immediate improvement in safety it fits well into the long term plans of the council.

“It’s only two weeks since Minister Donohoe visited Carlow, and during his visit, together with officials from Carlow County Council, I impressed upon him the importance of this project and I am delighted that he has responded positively and I would like to thank the Minister for the funding, he obviously could see the short and long term benefits of the project.

“It shows how important it is to invite and welcome Government Ministers to the county, it provides the opportunity to discuss the key issues and allows us to show at first hand the benefits of such proposals.
