Members disgusted as N11 upgrades will not go ahead
NEWS THAT vital upgrades on the N11 from Arklow to Rathnew will not go ahead despite the fact that funding has previously been allocated by the NRA and Department of Transport has been met with disgust at Wicklow County Council.
In a letter to Council management, the NRA stated that the tendering process must immediately cease and that works cannot proceed due to commitments to other projects which have already commenced.
‘This is the second time that this has happened and now it will be 2020 before anything is done with the N11. Huge money has been spent by somebody on advertising and on consultants. Now this work has been deferred again and how much did that cost us? If it was another area it would have gone through already,’ fumed Cllr. Jimmy O’Shaughnessy.
