resurfacing works on one of Wexford's worst roads is due to start this week,

Announcing the long-awaited start of the works on the Larkins Cross to Taghmon Road, Cllr George Lawlor said the news will be greeted with relief by the people who use this road on a regular basis.

As a result of the installation of new sewage pipes and the natural gas pipeline the road has suffered greatly and motorist, cyclist and pedestrian alike have had to endure an appalling road surface.

'Now that these essential projects have been completed I have met with Senior Roads Engineer Noel O Driscoll a number of times over the past couple of months and he has assured me that work to reinstate the road will start this week,' said Cllr George Lawlor.

The initial work will be from Larkins Cross to Growtown and from Taghmon to Furlongstown.

The work will involve the placing of crushed stone to strengthen the road and this will be followed by two layers of tar and chippings. 'Taghmon is one of the most vibrant villages in Counity Wexford and home to a number of important employers. Road users have suffered long enough and deserve to have their route to home and employment back in a proper condition,' said the councillor.
