Dundalk to Castleblayney Road to receive €150,000 upgrade
The N53 Dundalk to Castleblayney Road is set for a €150,000 upgrade after receiving funding from Transport Infrastructure Ireland.
The funding will see improvements carried out from Hackballscross Garda Station towards Rassan.
The news has been welcomed by local Fianna Fáil TD Declan Breathnach, who said: “I am bringing this to the attention of the people in the Hackballscross area that the design phase is being carried out now and people will need to consult with the Council and engage with the process when the plan goes on display.
“By engaging with the process we can avoid the problems that occurred when the last improvements took place, involving contra-flow sections and upset to regular users of the route.
“I have been told that when consultants are appointed to prepare the “Route Option Report”, a preferred route will be identified, and the project with then proceed to public consultation.”
