Summer roadworks fears

THERE are fears that a €1.6 million road resurfacing project in Camolin this summer could cause considerable disruption on the N11 for locals, as well as those passing through the village.
While welcoming the fact that the NRA has authorised the funding needed to upgrade and resurface Camolin's Main Street, Local Councillor Declan Macpartlin expressed concern that the contract could cause major disruption.
The Council has said that the work should start in May or June, and could take three months to complete. Councillors were recently told that earlier work carried out on the road 'didn't hold.'
'Failure in the past to deal properly with the Main Street means that this contract will take three months, with a probable start around school summer closing time,' said Cllr. Macpartlin. 'Camolin presents difficulties from a bypass point of view and this indicates a difficult traffic management situation.'
'I will be organising a local meeting on this issue and anybody with concerns about the project will be welcome to attend,' he added.
