Labour Councillor Virginia O’Dowd has welcomed the road improvements on Carrig Hill, Ballycommon, that have started this week. The roadworks include road widening and surfacing and the continuation of the footpath up to local national school.
“This will be a huge benefit to pupils, church goers and the community in general,” she said.
“Anybody who uses that road will know how narrow the carriageway is and how badly in need it is of improvement,” said Cllr O’Dowd.
Cllr O’Dowd said she was part of a fantastic local committee that worked very hard on getting the work to this stage. She thanked them for all the time and effort that they put into it.
However, she said they “were greatly helped by local area engineer Peter Fee, who listened to all the concerns and acted accordingly”.
The Labour Party councillor said that the improvement work carried out in Ballycommon, which included trafiic calming measures, by North Tipperary County Council had enhanced the village and this work at Carrig will bring it all together.
