1170

Residents in Tipperary town living close to Fr Matthew Street and the N74 Cashel road have been notified that a major road work project will start on Monday April 29th.

A Clonmel based firm, Glas Civil Engineering, are the lead contractors on the project which will cause significant disruption. The works area extends from the town limits just past the St Michael’s Graveyard to the Bansha Road roundabout. The works involve upgrades to water, sewage, drainage, ESB, public lighting and E–network cabling in addition to the road and footpath replacement and new street furniture and landscaping.  There will also be changes to parking along the route and at St Michael’s Graveyard.

The company expects to work from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday. It is estimated that the project will take 18 months to complete. Details of a traffic management plan have yet to be finalised. One option under consideration is for the N74 road to be made one way to allow traffic to exit Tipperary town towards Cashel and for traffic entering Tipperary Town to be diverted left via Knockanrawley to reach the roundabout at the Main Street/N74 junction via the Bansha Road.

There will be a scheme website, which will provide details of the works as they progress. This will come into operation in May 2024. The website address will be www.n74Tipperarytown.ie

The contractors are also asking interested parties to provide their telephone number or email to be able to receive updates as the project progresses.
