    "Step forward for plans to upgrade N84 Headford Road"

    Although the part of the road to be upgraded isn't specified, I'll guess it's the Curragh Line section that's straight but narrow and liable to collisions due to excessive traffic.

    No word on funding for this but this being Galway cries of poverty and lack of investment and unemployment will likely see this whisked along the queue like all other BMW projects are.

    TII have allocated money for early planning on this in 2020 - long way off but it's starting up.

    Now an official major project. From the M6 Galway City Ring Road to Clonboo

    I don't like Galway City or Co Councils at all, them being borderline useless, but this quote from that article sums it up nicely.


    “It's envisaged that the N84 Corridor will be classified as a major project with estimated project costs to exceed €20 million so I do fear ultimately the decision to proceed with it will be linked with the outcome of the GCOB and the mood of the Government and TD's of the day to include it in the capital infrastructure plan. For the moment, all I can do at Council level is to continue to push for the project and upgrade of the road to anyone who'll listen.”

    Last month, Paschal Donohoe raised that €20 million threshold for being considered a Major Project to €100 million for infrastructure projects, in an attempt to get more of the infrastructure budget spent.

    Same old crap regarding the curraghline from Galway councillors and officials. Every time there's an accident or road closure there, a statement is trotted out saying they are working on upgrading it. Will never get done. Pathetic considering there are practically no roadside properties impeding road widening. This could have been chipped away at years ago for very little cost. It's pure wasteland along that stretch. Somehow Galway city/county council manage to find avoid getting anything constructive built for the area.

    There's a recent Galway county council document online that refers to this project. The timeline is 2032 and total expenditure is expected to be 120m.
