Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Revised National Development Plan: Discussion
That is okay but if it is the roads authority perhaps there will be some work in conjunction with it. The access road is expected to be at least two years away. There are treacherous road conditions. We do not expect to see the N11 upgrade for ten years. There is a 400% increase in traffic, creating treacherous road conditions. There are a lot of junctions on the existing road with the 400% increase in traffic. Absolutely nothing has been done to take care of it in a way that makes it safer or improves road safety. As a matter of fact, we have had an issue where a car drove into a house off the Rosslare Road, the national through route as we call it now. There was no getting through to TII or the NTA with regard to how the house might be protected. It was the second time it happened.
