The Elizabethan bridge on River St is currently due to get funding to be refurbished and strengthened. While this work is going on they hope to upgrade the road markings on it as they have faded. A date in the new year will see the project begin.
Cllr M Connolly proposed that Galway County Council (GCC) to get the road markings on the Sli na hAbhainn and by the Shearwater Hotel upgraded as they have faded away. He would like it done as soon as possible but the Officials have said they will investigate it and won’t give a time frame for completion.
Cllr Declan Geraghty wanted an update on the idle traffic lights at Creagh Junction. Senior Engineer Mr Fahey responded by saying he wasn’t aware of any proposal to re-install these lights. GCC would have to investigate it but advised there would have to be a specific application to get this done.
Cllr Parsons also asked for an update in the swim feasibility study on the River Suck for the town centre. The application was made earlier this year, but it came in too late. Mr. Liam Hanrahan Director of Services has made a commitment for the application to be submitted to the National ‘Outdoor Recreation Scheme’ in 2023. This will hopefully identify and cost the best location for an outdoor bathing and water recreation point on the River that runs through the precincts of the town.
