Ark­low’s roads need up­grade – coun­cil­lor

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

IN­VEST­MENT is needed to bring Ark­low’s roads net­work up too stan­dard,’ says a lo­cal Wick­low County Coun­cil­lor.

Ac­cord­ing to Cllr Pat Fitzger­ald, it is not suf­fi­cient to wait un­til large scale works are hap­pen­ing and that re­me­dial works are needed ur­gently in many ar­eas.

‘I have never seen so many roads within the town need­ing in­vest­ment. I men­tioned roads such Mel­lows Av­enue, Abbey Street, Lower Ti­na­hask, Emo­clew Road, Cool­gre­any Road and the Navvy Hill. I am con­scious that some roads will be dug up when the work on the waster­wa­ter treat­ment plant gets un­der but at this stage that could be four years away,’ he said.

He ac­knowl­edged road im­prove­ments which have hap­pened on the north side of town and Main Street.

‘The town has been starved of fund­ing for in­vest­ment in the roads men­tioned since the demise of the town coun­cils,’ he said.
