Frustration over lack of progress on “badly needed” pedestrian crossing in Letterfrack

There’s frustration over a lack of progress on installing a “badly needed” pedestrian crossing in Letterfrack.

Local councillor Eileen Mannion has once again raised the issue with Galway County Council at a meeting this week.

She argues that provision was made for a crossing years ago when roadworks were carried out by Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

But despite that, and long-running calls for the crossing to be installed, there’s been no movement and there are no solid plans in place.

Councillor Mannion says it’s long overdue and badly needed.
