Clarity sought on proposed works along N84

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Clarity is being sought on proposed works along the N84.

A telecoms company in conjunction with a national gas provider has applied to Transport Infrastructure Ireland for a road opening licence between Ballindooley Cross and Headford.

It’s to facilitate works to run broadband cabling in the verge along the N84 – connecting into a substation in the Ballindooley area.

Councillor James Charity is seeking clarity on whether these works would provide increased broadband connectivity in the wider Castlegar and Killoughter area.

He also wants to know if gas pipeline works are being contemplated – due to the involvement of a gas provider.

The Independent Councillor is also calling for the works to be strictly carried out during non-peak hours on the N84.
