Work on upgrading the Thurles road at Latteragh is scheduled to start this year, Cllr John Carroll was told at this Monday’s North Tipperary County Council meeting.
“This is the poorest section on the road. No winter goes by without a number of accidents,” he said.
Cllr Carroll also urged that the council also write to the Department to carry out work at Knockalton hill.
Senior roads engineer Michael F Hayes said that the Department had been written to for funding.
