Works on the one-way system around Letterkenny Cathedral are scheduled to be completed by 22nd of
September 2022, according to reports.
The Letterkenny roads section of Donegal County Council has confirmed that works are progressing well. The project is now nine weeks into a 20-week contract.
The scheme aims to alleviate traffic congestion in the area and create on-street parking for the various schools in the area (one of the main causes of congestion).
The new route will make College Row one-way in the northbound direction; Sentry Hill Road one-way in the southbound direction; and Cathedral Road one-way in the westbound direction.
The scheme also includes the introduction of local traffic calming measures including safe pedestrian / cycle crossing facilities.
The major project is funded from an allocation of €750,000 from the NTA Active Travel funding and a further allocation of €165,000 from the Department of Transport, Specific Improvement Grant.
An update was given to Councillors of the Letterkenny-Milford MD on Tuesday. Commenting at the meeting, Cllr Ciaran Brogan asked that the local authority would review the position of a pole in the footpath in front of the parochial house and the Old Boys School.
