At 7pm yesterday evening, as the worst of the storm abated, our response crews mobilised and 140 of our staff turned their attention to the cleanup operation. 20 items of heavy equipment were used in the task of removing fallen trees. Priority was given to National Routes, followed by Regional Routes. By midnight last night all National Roads were once again passable. As of 9.00am this morning all regional roads are also now clear.Wexford and Gorey Districts expect all of the Local Roads to be passable by 18.00 this evening, while Enniscorthy and New Ross expect it will be tomorrow before this work is completed. It will take to the end of this week for all minor debris to be cleared from the roads.Figures are still coming in but the estimate now is that well over 600 trees blew down.
N25 Ballygoman to Knockeen Pavement Scheme (from Barntown roundabout to Holemstown) commencing on the 2nd of October for approximately 10 weeks weather dependant. Stop go traffic management will be in place for the duration of the scheme. Expect delays.
