The Transport Minister has visited a stretch of the N24 near Carrick on Suir which is known locally as “the road of death”.
The junction for Pilltown has been the scene of a number of fatal crashes over the years
Locals in the area have long campaigned for a change to the road layout and improved safety levels on the Piltown/Fiddown bypass.
Tipperary TD Mattie McGrath accompanied Minister Shane Ross when he visited the site yesterday afternoon.
He’s hopeful that something will come from the visit to ease the concerns.
