At North Tipp County Council, Cllr Denis Ryan raised the worsening condition of the stretch of road between the Templemore Road Roundabout and Kennedy Park with parts subsiding and large cracks emerging.
With winter approaching there is a real danger of serious damage to traffic and road users alike. Engineer John Jones said this is a national secondary road and is the responsibility of National Roads Authority. Mr Jones agreed to contact the N.R.A. Cllr Ryan pointed out that this road is carrying increased traffic since the new motorway opened and urged immediate action before Winter.
