The scheduled, routine maintenance works on the Castleisland Bypass which was due to begin early next month has been brought forward and work has actually begun there this morning, Monday, September 25th at 8am.

Councillors Charlie Farrelly and Fionnán Fitzgerald were informed and they have relayed the information for the benefit of their constituents.

Needless to say but care and attention will need to be uppermost while the works are progressing and even more so in the light of the spiralling levels of road traffic tragedies so far this year.

The notice from area engineer, Jimmy O’Leary reads as follows.

Dear Councillors,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the routine maintenance works at Castleisland has been brought forward this week and will be starting this morning, as per the program below:
