Delivering this project is a priority for Leitrim County Council. The safety of the existing N16 at Munakill is compromised by a poor alignment, poor visibility, narrow verges, substandard junctions and many private access points. The overall aim of the proposed new scheme is to improve connectivity of North Leitrim and address existing operational and safety issues,
