The route selection process for the proposed Thurles By-Pass will be completed in a months time with the preferred route to be made known to the general public, it has been revealed.

The long drawn out process which is being undertaken by the National Roads Authority was due to be completed before the end of the first quarter of this year, but hit a few snags along the way and will now be made known before the end of May, The Tipperary Star understands.

When announced, many planning applications in the locality, not directly affected by the route, will be capable of moving forward and can be processed by North Tipperary County Council.

Director of Services of the local authority, Mr Marcus O’Connor informed Cllr Seamus Hanafin at this months meeting of the council that it was “unfortunate” that the project had been delayed. However, he was happy to report that the news would be made known in a months time.
