Concerned TDs call for bypass back-up plan

TWO Fine Gael TDs have called on the Government to put in place a Plan B after a vital city bypass came before the European Court yesterday.

The Galway City Outer bypass was before a panel of judges in Luxembourg who will examine whether plans for the multi-million route contravene an EU Habitats Directive.

A final ruling on the matter will be made by the Irish Supreme Court after it receives the opinion of the European Court of Justice.

That decision will not be known until next year.
