Upgrade resurfacing road works have been ongoing in the Drogheda Rural area by Louth County Council, with the Sheetland road and Termonfeckin to Clogherhead route getting a makeover during July.
The road works programme includes the resurfacing of the Newtownstalaban/Boyne Business Park road, that has caused difficulty for many users.
Drogheda Rural and Independent Councillor Declan Power has welcomed the road resurfacing works, stating, "I am delighted to see the recent road resurfacing works at the Sheetland road and the stretch from Termonfeckin to Clogherhead but in particular the road resurfacing at Newtownstalaban/ Boyne Business Park road.
"I have raised the condition of this road with Louth County Council for well over 18 months as the road worsened.
"Louth County Council recently did a patch job that helped drivers but that was not going to last. I liaised with the Council again with a plea to resurface the same area.
"I'm delighted that the Council have responded and resurfaced all of the same road located outside Lagan Housing development, Newtownstalaban power station, Butterly shipping, and stretching beyond the Boyne business park.
“I commend Louth County Council for delivering these essential road works used by many from Clogherhead, Termonfeckin and Sandpit areas and the 450 workers in the Boyne Business Park.
“This is a great success and a tremendous boost for the Drogheda Rural area".
