N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery Road Project

Roscommon County Council, with the support of Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), is progressing the Planning & Design of the N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery Road Project. The section of the N61 under consideration in this project is approx. 7.5km long and extends from Newtown townland south of Roscommon town to Galey townland south of Knockcroghery village.

The N61 route between Roscommon and Athlone is a busy National Secondary Route with current traffic flow in the region of 8000 AADT at Ballymurray. The existing road is substandard in terms of horizontal and vertical alignment, cross-section, sightlines, and the high number of junctions and accesses. The route passes through the centre of Knockcroghery village and there are two level crossings with the Dublin to Westport/ Ballina Railway Line – at Ballymurray/ Bogganfin and at Galey townlands.
