Sligo’s Western Distributor Road was opened to traffic on the afternoon of Monday 11th January. Arrangements for a formal official opening will be made when public health restrictions allow.
Western Distributor Road Opened to traffic
The road will link the N4 National Primary Road at the Caltragh interchange with the Roger Eames road Ballydoogan and to the R292 Strandhill Road, and consists of 1.9km of single urban distributor road between the existing N4 junction (Caltragh) and the existing Ballydoogan Road
The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council Councillor Dara Mulvey said
‘The Western Distributor Road is of major strategic importance to this region. It will provide quality access to the proposed new IDA Business Park at Oakfield and the existing IDA Finisklin Business Park.’
Mayor Councillor Rosaleen O’Grady commended the Project Team for ‘their outstanding work in very challenging circumstances‘ and said
‘the new route will reduce traffic congestion on the Sligo Inner Relief Road and adjoining routes and provide much improved access to the southwest of the urban area.’
