Tipperary County Council is pleased to announce that two separate contracts for road pavement and safety improvement works have been awarded to GLAS Civil Engineering Limited. These contracts will see an enhancement to the road infrastructure along the N24 in Carrick on Suir and the N76 in Grangemockler Village. The two schemes represent a combined investment of approximately €10m which is being provided to Tipperary County Council by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII).

The Works include footpath improvements, pavement strengthening and landscaping within the urban areas and will build on previous schemes completed by Tipperary County Council on the national routes, to enhance safety and environment for both residents and road users.

Marcus O’Connor, Director of Services, Tipperary County Council, stated that “the schemes will reduce traffic speeds, improve access for local businesses and bring environmental benefits through lower noise and exhaust emissions from vehicles in the urban areas”.

Joe MacGrath, Chief Executive, Tipperary County Council, signed the contracts and said “the Council has been working closely with Transport Infrastructure Ireland to bring both of these projects to construction. I am delighted that the Council has now awarded contracts for the projects and I look forward to works commencing in the near future”.

Cathaoirleach of Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District, Cllr. David Dunne noted that “this is a significant investment in Carrick-on-Suir town and this Municipal District. I look forward in particular to the enhancement of public areas making it safer for local people, shoppers and visitors. Cllr. Dunne acknowledged that the works would cause some disruption during construction and asked that every effort be made to minimise this to protect businesses and those travelling to work, schools, and shops. I wish to thank the public in advance for their co-operation and patience”.

Tipperary County Council advises that Temporary Traffic Management will be in place for both projects to ensure the flow of pedestrians and traffic, and will keep the public notified through regular communications on www.tipperarycoco.ie and on social media.
