Businesses demand North West road upgrades 13.12.16

BUSINESS leaders from eight towns and counties including Donegal will today demand that the Government honours its promises to upgrade the N4 and N5 routes.
They say economic development is being "hampered" because roads that connect the Midlands to the North West of Ireland are badly in need of repairs and require upgrading to motorway status in sections.
The ‘N4/N5’ chambers of commerce – representing Donegal, Athlone, Mayo, Mullingar, Longford, Sligo, Carrick-On-Shannon and Roscommon will present their case at a meeting in Buswells Hotel, Dublin from 11am today.
They will argue that the current state of the roads is putting the North West and West at a disadvantage in attracting foreign direct investment and creating jobs. They will also demand that the road upgrades be included in the Government’s 2017 Capital Spending plan.
"The N4 is a vital lifeline to the West and North West of Ireland for industry, commerce and tourism. It is a major gateway to the Wild Atlantic Way and to the proposed Centre Parcs facility near Ballymahon," said a spokesperson.
