Galway County Council’s intention is to widen the road at this location – and while there is agreement with a landowner on one side, the same cannot be said with the landowner on the other side as negotiations continue.
If there was consent of both property owners, then the road widening programme – designed and funded by Transport Infrastructure Ireland – could be completed by this time next year.
However, if the Council has to go down the road of compulsory purchase, then the whole process could take as long as four years to complete, according to some officials.
The matter was raised by Cllr Karey McHugh at a meeting of Tuam Municipal Council when she said that traders in Dunmore were concerned about the loss of business as a result of the lights.
Cllr McHugh asked for some clarity as to how long the lights would be in place as she added that there seemed to be some conflicting views on that front.
