Newcastle to N11 road improvements welcomed

Posted by | Transport M50/N11 | No Comments

When the last Development Plan was being prepared four years ago I pushed to get this road ‘listed for improvement’. I am pleased that €370,000 has just been allocated to improve it. The section from the village to the church has been improved, strengthened and a footpath added, over the past 4 years. This money, to be spent in 2009, will allow the rest to be improved. One part is too narrow and I expect that it will be widened.

The first phase of this was completed with the work on the road past Delgany Golf Club. The next phase, around Delgany National School, has also been completed. The next phase is from the school to Killincarrick including increasing the size and straightening the culvert which flooded some houses last August. The aim is to provide better pedestrian facilities, improve the poor road surface and prevent flooding. This requires purchasing some land and negotiations are ongoing.

Newcastle Aerodrome

I am strongly opposed to the present alleged expansion which has been done without planning permission. There is permission, from about 20 years ago, for use as a private airfield. There have been a number of Enforcement Actions by the Council over the years to prevent commercial use and expansion. If they want to expand they should apply for planning permission like anyone else. The Council has recently initiated Enforcement Action against the owner.
