Irish Government are set to consider a new plan for a €600 million ring road to be built around Galway city.

As reported by The Irish Times, a memo has stated that the proposed ring road will “reduce congestion in the city by segregating cross-city traffic from urban traffic.”

The proposed route of this new ring road involves a new bridge and viaduct over the River Corrib and two short tunnels to be built on on the city’s east side.
