The surface of a road near Scariff could disappear in a year or two unless substantial repair works are carried out, a local county councillor has warned.
Councillor Joe Cooney has requested Clare County Council to immediately carry out road repair work on the Clonusker Road, Scariff as it is in a very bad condition.
Expressing disappointment with the response to a motion tabled at a recent Killaloe Electoral Area meeting, Councillor Cooney stressed this road should be included in the council’s three-year roadworks programme.
He said the council may not have any road in a year or two unless substantial work is carried out.
Councillor Pat Burke pointed out this is a fairly busy road serving a lot of local landowners and Clonlusker Church.
He agreed the road was in a very poor condition, particularly the cross up to the church and stressed it badly needs road resurfacing.
Senior executive engineer, Seán Lenihan told Councillor Cooney that surface repairs to the Clonusker Road, the L8030 are currently being carried out. “Additional drainage works are necessary and it is hoped to attend to this work in due course as resources permit,” he added.
