You have to give a little to some people who are not yet familiar with manners and etiquette.
Using CAPITAL LETTERS in posts is the same as shouting. Bad Manners and trying to shout down those who suggest alternatives.
1. Remember that the bypass around Turlough Village is one of the great advances since the 1980s in Castlebar.
2. The more cross roads entering onto a main national route like the N5 the more people get killed in the cross fire accidents that occur when slow vehicles cross 100km/h national routes. Each additional exist or X-roads means that many more deaths and injuries.
3. The original plan was for the N5 to proceed along the old Turlough Road until (allegedly) a lot of so-called property speculators began to buy fields on the aforesaid thoroughfare with a view to a nice buy-out of the cpo variety. It became too expensive so a new route was used to the south of the river across agricultural land rather than expensive 'frontage'. There are houses there still with that road-widening 'frontage' outside them but unfortunately no joined up footpaths or cycle paths.
4. This gave rise to the 'main' Turlough X-Roads over the N5, The new/old closed junction at the Parke junction - the one we are talking about here, the lethal Windsor junction (no road markings for the right turn going into Castlebar with a sever danger of being rear-ended, the laughable 'N5 Tyres' junction and the Greenfields junction which probably still has a cul-de-sac notice to try and stop idiots driving out onto the mainhigh-speed 100km/h N5 route. All of these crossing the main national N5 route within an easy walk of each other (never mind drive and so-called 'hardship'.
5. To talk about HARDSHIP is ridiculous - why not donate some money to starving black babies in the Sudan instead of your first world whinging?
