Council to write to Transport Department about reclassifying main roads to Ballybunion

Kerry County Council is to write to the Department of Transport about reclassifying the roads from Ballybunion to Listowel and Tralee.

Cllr Robert Beasley raised the issue at the recent Listowel Municipal District meeting, calling for the R553 Ballybunion Listowel Road and the R551 Ballybunion Tralee Road to be upgraded from Regional to National Secondary roads.

The Sinn Féin councillor says Ballybunion is a primary town, where the population increases dramatically from March to October, and such upgrades are necessary.
