RATHDRUM/BALLINACLASH ROAD REALIGNMENT OFFICIALLY OPENED

A recently completed road realignment at Rathdrum/Ballinaclash (R752/R753) in the townland of Corballis was officially opened on Tuesday last (June 15th) by the Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Pat Kennedy. 

This realigned road will be used especially by supporters attending matches at the GAA grounds in Aughrim.

There are a substantial number of vehicles using this road, and in 2019 the annual average daily traffic turning at this junction was 3,309, with 20 per cent of those being HGV’s.

Wicklow County Council would like to thank the Department of Transport for providing funding for this scheme with special thanks also to the landowner who facilitated this safety improvement project.

The completion of this realignment will improve the visibility and legibility of the junction, providing a safer transport route on this key piece of infrastructure.
