Mem­bers dis­gusted as N11 up­grades will not go ahead

Bray People - - News -

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.
