Good Progress with Edenderry – Enfield Road

Good Progress with Edenderry – Enfield Road

The major roadwork’s which began last January on the Edenderry to Enfield road is progressing very well. Motorists are experiencing some small delays at present but nothing too serious, as the huge machinery unveils the new roadway, which will greatly improve the travel time and also take away the numerous dangerous bends. Last week, tarmacadam was laid of part of the new roadway. This is a three-year project and it would appear that it might be completed ahead of schedule, bringing the everyday headaches for motorists to an end.
