Part of New Line Road still closed

THE final section of the New Line road before Wexford town is to remain closed until early July.

The road was closed from Kate's Farm Shop just before the Whitford Roundabout to the Mountain Bar on Monday.

Cllr George Lawlor said the county council's investigations revealed that a resurfacing job wouldn't be enough as the road's foundations were 'very weak'.

As a result the entire road is taken up and re-laid, which has necessitated its complete closure.

Diversions are in place, primarily bringing people through Hayestown and back out at the Mountain Bar, while many others are creating their own diversions, through the likes of Taghmon and Murrintown.

Cllr Lawlor said the works are due to be completed for the week beginning Monday, July 11, but the council are hoping to finish ahead of schedule, all going well.
