Call for N24 upgrade to be prioritised ahead of Brexit

The government is being told that upgrading the N24 to motorway status between Cahir and Carrick on Suir needs to be ramped up as Brexit approaches.

It’s believed that heavy goods traffic accessing the UK through Rosslare will be increased over the coming years if a hard North South border comes into being.

Carrick Independent Councillor Eddie O’Meara says we need to ensure we have the right infrastructure in place before that happens to prevent total gridlock on roads in the South East.
