Sligo County Council Sign

Sligo County Council has announced that works at Hughes Bridge have been  been discontinued for the Christmas holiday, commencing on Friday 19 December.

In a statement, the authority has said the temporary traffic management plan will continue to apply during the holiday period. “During this period also it is intended that footpaths on both side of the bridge will be available for use by pedestrians.

“From Monday 5th January, 2015 and for a duration of approximately three weeks, piling works will be ongoing on the north-west embankment (adjacent to Salmon Point
i.e. the old swimming pool) and these works are likely to give rise to periodic lane closures in the northbound carriageway of Hughes Bridge.  During these times traffic may be reduced to one-lane northbound.  Delays are to be expected particularly
during peak times.

“As always Sligo County Council and L&M Keatings will endeavour to minimise the effects of the works where possible and we regret any inconvenience which may be caused.”
