Mo­tor­way to Ross­lare needed – Hore

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THERE is noth­ing wrong with the Whit­ford junc­tion in Wex­ford, ac­cord­ing to Di­rec­tor of Ser­vices for Roads Eamonn Hore who said a mo­tor­way from Oyle­gate to Ross­lare Har­bour is what is needed.

Cllr Rob­bie Ire­ton said driv­ers are en­coun­ter­ing prob­lems at the junc­tion, but Mr Hore said: ‘The Whit­ford junc­tion isn’t dan­ger­ous if peo­ple drive care­fully.

‘We need a mo­tor­way from Oyle­gate to Ross­lare. We can in­crease the size of the junc­tion and tweak en­try points into it but we do need an ex­ten­sion of the mo­tor­way to Ross­lare Har­bour,’ he said.

Re­spon­do­ing to ques­tions about works on the New Ross and En­nis­cor­thy by­passes, Mr Hore said they are both on track to be com­pleted in the first half of next year.
