Louth road gets cleared by Council for sole use of cyclists and pedestrians

Louth County Council have cleared the old road, running parallel to N1 south of Jonesborough as far as the R132 roundabout and road bridge, for the exclusive use of cyclists & pedestrians.

The local authority shared the news today on its social media channels, explaining that the road is car free since N1 was built but had become overgrown & narrowed with debris.

The operation was carried out by Council Operations Engineers with their motorway partners Globalvia Jons.
