Update on N52 Junction at Durrow, Co. Offaly

I have received confirmation from Minister of Transport Eamon Ryan TD, that funding for road safety improvements at Durrow, on the N52 will be made available.


I attended a public meeting in Durrow in December, where I heard many people from the community voice the concerns and fears of regarding the safety of the road junction onto the N52.


It was clear that people felt the junction was unsafe for many, including those travelling to and from school, the GAA pitch, and the community centre.


I committed at that meeting to liaise with my colleague, Minister Eamon Ryan and his officials within the Department of Transport.


Following my engagement with Minister Ryan, he has confirmed that funding is available for safety improvements at this junction. Subject to Transport Infrastructure Ireland approving the detail of any proposal submitted by the County Council, procurement and construction can commence as quickly as possible.


I have written to the Director of Services at Offaly County Council to ask that this proposal is progressed and submitted to TII as soon as possible so work can commence, and the urgent safety issues of the Durrow community can be addressed.
