Letterkenny council to question developers on Joe Bonner Road inaction

Letterkenny Town Council is seeking an urgent meeting with Bennett Construction to ask why the long promised Joe Bonner link road has not been completed.

The new link will connect Pearse Road and Neil T Blaney Road, opening some land up for development.

It was to have been constructed by Bennett as part of the deal which has seen the civic offices built by the company in exchange for a favourable lease on a landbank in the area owned by the council.

Cllr Ciaran Brogan, who was one of the staunchest defenders of the deal, says the council has fulfilled it's role in the deal, and options will soon be open to it.
