The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council Councillor Paul Taylor has commended the project team involved in delivering the N4 Collooney to Castlebaldwin dual carriageway, which opens to traffic this afternoon, Monday.

The Scheme will be completed in the coming months, but today traffic is being diverted onto the N4 dual carriageway to enable works to take place on side roads and the old N4, particularly at the Castlebaldwin end.

‘Approximately €63.9 million benefits are predicted over the 30-year appraisal period of the new 14KM Dual Carriageway. In addition, safety benefits of €7.4 million are predicted over the same period, as a result of the higher standard of road.

This is a major project for our Authority and our county and is the first of the key National Road Projects listed in the National Development Plan to be delivered under Project Ireland 2040 ‘
