Resurfacing works that have improved a busy section of road between Raphoe and Convoy have been welcomed locally.
The works follow the completion last year of the replacement of some 6km of the local mains water pipe network carried out by Irish Water.
Praising its completion, Councillor Liam Doherty said: “I very much welcome the completion this week of the resurfacing of the Convoy to Raphoe road route.”
“This work was very badly needed as the condition of the route was quite poor and had fallen into a state of disrepair, something which was compounded by the completion last year of the pipe replacement programme by Irish Water.
“While of course this work was necessary to improve the quality of the drinking water, replacing the local piping network required the excavation of a considerable amount of the roadway above and this – understandably – took its toll on the quality of the road’s surface in the areas affected.
“I am therefore delighted that, after much lobbying, that Donegal County Council has this week finally completed the resurfacing of the road between the two towns.”Tags:
