Major Offaly road to close of road works this week
Offaly County Council has announced that planned roadworks on a major Offaly road have been postponed due to the inclement weather.
The N52 between Birr and Riverstown was closed for works on Monday and Tuesday but the decision has been taken to stop the works and reopen the road until further notice.
Offaly County Council says the road closure will no longer be in effect due to weather conditions for the contractor laying asphalt.
The road reopened at 5pm on Tuesday and will remain open until further notice.
