FUNDING has been approved to carry out works on a number of dangerous junctions on the Callan bypass.

Cllr Tom Maher welcomed the announcement that €280,000 had been allocated by the National Roads Authority for safety measures on the bypass.

“The first thing to do is to put ghost islands on all the right hand junctions. These junctions are highly dangerous and there have been serious accidents in the past,” said Cllr Maher.
