first_imgResidents in Letterkenny could be about to experience four months of frustrating traffic delays following the announcement of new roadworks. The works will take place on the Rockhill Road from the Old Town Bridge to the Greyrock/ Nestles Road.The planned road closure of Rockhill Road had initially been deferred after opposition was raised by local residents and businesses in August.  Donegal County Council had originally planned to close a part of the road outside Letterkenny from Monday 19th August until 26th November 2019.  Diversions were to be put in place via the Greyrock Road.However, following opposition, the Donegal County Council now intends to make an order to have the road closed to traffic between November 12th to March 5th 2020.These roadworks have been planned to facilitate the installation of a new sewer and associated works by Irish Water.A break in the works will take place over the Christmas period from the last two weeks of November to the first two weeks in January 2020. An alternative route has been designated for traffic during the works: Traffic approaching from Newmills/Glenswilly on the Rockhill Road going to Town Centre will be directed via Greyrock Road. This will lead onto Father Mc Loone Terrace and onto Oldtown Bridge.Traffic approaching from Letterkenny Town Centre will be directed via Father Mc Loone Terrace onto Greyrock Road.Objections to the proposals can be made before 4pm on Wednesday, October 16th.The full notice can be viewed here.  Four months of traffic delays expected for Letterkenny’s Rockhill Road was last modified: October 10th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
