The need for Councillors to all sing from the same hymn sheet, to ensure that the N26 road out of Ballina and the proposed new orbital route around the town are both prioritised by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) was highlighted by Fine Gael Councillor John O’Hara at the monthly meeting of Ballina Municipal District.

Councillor O’Hara claimed that the N26 road from Mount Falcon to Foxford urgently requires significant upgrading in light of recent collisions and he says if traffic flow around the town of Ballina is not improved then the town will lose out on local business.

At a recent meeting between the TII and members of Mayo County Council Roads SPC, Councillors were informed that it could be at least a decade before the long promised N26 route, from Mount Falcon to Swinford reaches the government’s capital programme.

Cllr O’Hara insists that it’s up to Ballina Councillors working in unison to put pressure on the government and the TII to re-prioritise roads in and around Ballina.
