Update from Monaghan County Council RE: Land Subsidence Incident at Drumgossat/Knocknacran Magheracloone
Wednesday 31st October 2018 3:00 pm
Following notification from the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE), Monaghan County Council will re-open the LP4900 local road to Drumgossat this evening, Wednesday 31st October 2018.
The R179 Regional Road was reopened last Friday.
An independent consulting firm, commissioned by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) has reviewed and verified the results of geological & hydrological testing carried out over the past four weeks by Gyproc Ireland Ltd and SRK Consultants.
Monaghan County Council wish to thank the residents, businesses and community of Magheracloone for their forbearance over the past five weeks. The diversions and one-way systems were put in place to provide safe access to the locality following the land subsidence and the subsequent increased risk to road users on the R179 and LP4900 roads.
