The Anglo-Celt reports that Ballyconnell, Co Cavan, is to have a new “inner relief road” (a cure for indigestion?). The road will cross the Junction Canal (Shannon–Erne Waterway), or Woodford Canal as the newspaper calls it, on “an expansive new bridge”:
The bridge has to allow enough clearance for boating traffic on the canal. The new road will come out past the Old Ennis Mill location and just before the Quinn cement plant.
The work is to be finished by August 2012. The Waterways Ireland website has, as yet, no information about any interruption to navigation during construction.
