McDAID URGES COUNCIL TO KEEP BONAGEE LINK ROAD HIGH ON THE AGENDA

first_imgCllr James Pat Mc Daid asked the Council to write to the Minister to seek a commitment of funding for the continuation of the planning process, CPOs and a full EIS (Environmental Impact Study) for the Bonagee Link Road outside Letterkenny.Cllr James Pat McDaidThe council acquired Martins filling station and part of the Unifi car park for this project so they have already given a commitment to it, he said.However, Cllr Mc Daid said that this isn’t good enough as there has been no progress in relation to this project ever since. All the relevant studies has been carried out and a cost benefit analysis to prove that this project would be very beneficial to the economic development of Letterkenny.“Letterkenny really needs this second bridge as it would do so much for the Town and all surrounding areas. For example, this would relieve the traffic congestion very significantly around the town and it would also save the road users a lot of time while travelling up towards the mountain top and also to out the Ramelton Rd.”Cllr Mc Daid went onto to say that this project has been kept in the dark for long enough.“We seen the effects of the traffic congestion in past times when the road had to be closed due to traffic accidents. The town was completely blocked and as a result people missed hospital appointments, were late for school and work, and missed flights to name a few. If we had this Bonagee link road this wouldn’t have happened.” He said this project must be a priority for the growing town of Letterkenny.“It has been 25 years since the dual carriage way has been opened and that’s as far as we have got. The Manor round about to Lifford road is another road which needs to be a priority this is a very poor road which is subject to a lot of critics due to traffic when leading into a town the size of Letterkenny,” he concluded McDAID URGES COUNCIL TO KEEP BONAGEE LINK ROAD HIGH ON THE AGENDA was last modified: April 18th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Bonagee Link RoadCllr James Pat McDaiddonegallast_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling It’s a mindset that has allowed the Cardinals to beat up on several playoff-bound teams like the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts and Seahawks.Asked what this latest statement win should signal to the rest of the league, Arians didn’t hesitate.“They just better hope they don’t let us in the dance.”Even though the Cardinals have clinched their first 10-win season since 2009 with Sunday’s win, reaching the dance won’t be entirely up to them.Arizona can reach the playoffs with a win next Sunday and a San Francisco 49ers’ loss on Monday or a win next Sunday and a New Orleans Saints’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Still, becoming the first team since Dec. 24, 2011 to win at CenturyLink Field was pretty gratifying for the first-year head coach to say the least.“This goes up there pretty high,” said Arians on where the win ranks in his career. “I wish it was a playoff game. You wish you were going home for the second round of the playoffs having beaten a team like this on the road. “This is a huge win, and I’ve been lucky to be a part of a bunch of them.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retirescenter_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact It wasn’t always pretty, in fact for large stretches it was nothing but a battle for field position, but Arians and Co. kept their playoff hopes alive thanks to a 60-minute from the defense and a timely touchdown pass from Carson Palmer.“[This win was about] the resiliency of our football team,” Arians said. “We started off getting big plays, and then gave it away. Our defense played well the whole game. “They had been playing super and then they gave up a touchdown. It looked like, ‘Hey, here we go.’ And then the offense rebounds, goes and gets the score. The two-point play was huge to get the lead to seven. And then the turnover. It’s over when we put Stepfan [Taylor] and he busts the run. Game, set and match.”In the come-from-behind road victory, Arizona allowed 192 total yards and limited Russell Wilson to career lows in multiple categories including passing yards and completion percentage.“They were dominating,” Arians said of the defense. “It was fun to watch. And the next man steps up every week. Tony Jefferson [in place of Rashad Johnson] lit up and played great like I knew he would. Each man that plays, plays fast, hard and physical. That’s how we want to play.” – / 17last_img read more
