Varadker to turn first sod on Ballaghadereen bypass

Transport Minister, Leo Varadker is set to turn to sod on the new Ballaghadereen bypass in Co.Roscommon on Friday.

The 13.6 kilometre carriageway will commence at the N5 Charlestown bypass about 6 km north-east of Ballaghadereen and rejoin the existing N5 about 7.5 km east of Ballaghadereen.

The investment of almost €60 million will provide many jobs during the construction phase, which is expected to take over two years.
