Castletroy link road opens (Limerick Post)
LIMERICK County Council has announced this week that the long completed link road between the main Castletroy roundabout at the Groody River to the Garryglass roundabout on the Ballysimon Road adjacent to Pat Keogh Motors is to open within the next day or so.
Welcoming the decision, Cllr Kieran O’Donnell said it will have a very positive impact on traffic congestion on the Childer’s Road and the Golf Links Road in particular. But it will ease traffic jams for all motorists coming from the Castletroy, Castleconnell and the Dublin Road direction into the City via the Parkway roundabout.
Calling the opening “well overdue,” Cllr O’Donnell said that “There were delays with Limerick County Council taking the road in charge and that is why it has laid idle for over six months“. :confused: However, he said that the County Council will be removing the bollards blocking the road immediately and then the road will be open to traffic.
Deputy Jan O’Sullivan said that this road link is a critical piece of the area’s road network as the Castletroy area has witnessed considerable housing developments in recent years, resulting in significant population increases.
“I am delighted that the dispute between the developer and Limerick County Council both of whom completed separate sections of this road has now been resolved. In the interests of both the motorists who wish to avail of this new road, and the taxpayer who funded one section of the road it was totally unacceptable that motorists should have to endure additional unnecessary delays when the infrastructure was in place,” she said.
