Bridge Street is a problem for traffic in Dunmore.

FUNDING of half a million euro has been allocated to help come up with a plan to resolve a traffic problem in Dunmore town centre, while also giving a facelift to one of the town’s most derelict streets.

Motorists and, in particular, HGV drivers will be familiar with the challenge of narrow Bridge Street where it is nearly impossible for two cars to pass and continually creates problems for HGV traffic.

An application by Galway County Council for funding to come up with a possible solution has been successful under the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund.

The funding has been described as a “gamechanger” for Dunmore by Galway East Junior Minister Seán Canney who says this is the first step in being able to significantly enhance the town’s centre.
