Thurles Chamber President Mr. Pat Hayes has welcomed the recent news that Irish Rail have given their final consent to the construction of a bridge to traverse the main Dublin – Cork railway line, which will facilitate the proposed link road between the Nenagh and Templemore roads out of Thurles town.

“This bridge when joined with the proposed new link road, the route of which is in the later phase of being finalised, would greatly help to alleviate the traffic problems currently affecting businesses in Thurles and which has driven shoppers on the outskirts of Thurles to other towns to transact their daily business.”

Mr Hayes stated that he had been given to understand that contractors had now been appointed to this bridge building project and work is expected to begin before the end of the current year.

Mr Hayes stated however that the link road project was expected to take until mid 2011 before being completed and he called on all public representatives from all political parties and the NRA to expedite progress on this project and on the long promised Thurles bypass.

Details of the finalised plans for the link road route is expected to go on public display within the coming weeks.

    This link road affair has gone on too long. Only recently NAMA have approved 10 million euro for a major road project in the Dublin area, nod, nod, wink, wink. Are we doing something wrong down in these green pastures?

  • At Last, I am very pleased the newly opened Link-Road, has been named after the great, JIMMY DOYLE. I lived in the PIKE in the late 40’s just up from Tommy’s Cycle shop. I hope that the New link, will ease traffic up the square etc. Greetings to all from us here in the Delmarva-peninsula, Maryland. Tiobraid Aran Abu.
