New footpaths, pedestrian crossings, bus stops and lighting promised

Cllr Niall Kelleher: Has welcomed the funding

TRANSPORT Infrastructure Ireland has confirmed an allocation of funding to commence the appointment of a contractor to commence work on the long-promised redevelopment of Rathmore town.
The work will include an overlay of the N72 with the provision of new footpaths, two pedestrian crossings and bus stops as well as the undergrounding of the public lighting.
Welcoming the news, Rathmore native Cllr Niall Kelleher said it was a boost for a community that has been struggling for many decades because of a severe lack of investment.
“The funding from the TII will be spent alongside the funding previously allocated under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme and Leader and Clár funding as well as allocations from councillors,” he said.
This news comes on top of confirmation of the appointment of GLAS Construction for the removal of Stagmount bends to the west of Rathmore town.
Cllr Kelleher has also acknowledged the work done on Stagmount bends by former his former council colleague John Sheahan.
