Work to start on the tuambypass in january

WORK will start on the long-awaited Tuam bypass and the M17-M18 motorway on January 15. However it is still not clear whether or not the bypass will be opened ahead of the complete motorway.
In early January machinery will start to roll simultaneously on the town bypass and at two other locations further south towards Gort.
A spokesperson for the Direct Route consortium confirmed the date to The Tuam Herald this week.
“Work will commence on the Tuam bypass both northwards towards the Claremorris side of the town and southwards towards Gort at the same time as we will start work on the other two locations in South Galway,” said the spokesperson.
