Welcome for planned works at Yellow Lane

The stretch of road from Abbey Street to the Knockenrahan roundabout in Arklow is be overlaid this year.

Councillor Pat Fitzgerald, Cathaoirleach of Arklow Municipal District, has welcomed confirmation from the municipal district that the L2901/Yellow Lane to Abbey Street will be overlaid this year.

'Tender documents will go out in the coming weeks,' Cllr Fitzgerald said, 'and it is hoped that the work will be carried out some months later.'

Cllr Fitzgerald added that he had lobbied for this work to be done for some time as the road is in a poor state.

He said that while the over laying is taking place, he has asked that the ramps on the road should be looked at with a view to reducing them in some areas.

Yellow Lane is one of four local roads in the district due to be upgraded as part of the 2020 Roads programme.
