Restored road in pipeline

THE stretch of road from Mullagh to Miltown is to be fully restored after pipe-laying works are finished.
The news was relayed to Deputy Michael McNamara who said Clare County Council and Irish Water are committed to the works.
Irish Water’s main civil engineering contractors have recently excavated the Mullagh Cross to Mack’s Cross road to accommodate the laying of a replacement watermain.
“The replacement watermain will replace a section of main that had become extremely problematic in recent years and will hopefully bring a reliable supply of water to Miltown and several other areas en route,” explained Deputy McNamara.
The Independent TD acknowledged the issues caused for road users during the upgrade, but stressed that those are short term.
“While the inconvenience to road users at present is regrettable, it is also temporary,” he noted. “In response to my representation on behalf of the people of Mullagh and Miltown Malbay, the Road Section of Clare County Council says residents can be assured of a much-improved water supply and a newly restored road.
“The local authority has informed me it has committed sufficient money to allow the entire 4.5 kilometres of public road undergo permanent full width restoration later this year, and the section of public road from Mullagh Cross to Mack’s Cross is included in the Schedule of Municipal District Works 2021.”
