VRS repairs generally consist of replacing damaged sections of barrier on a like for like basis. Sites for VRS maintenance works consist of VRS locations along the national road network within the West Region comprising Counties Cavan, Clare, Donegal, Galway, Galway City, Leitrim, Limerick, Longford, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo, and Westmeath. This includes all mainline sections, together with approach roads and junctions in the immediate vicinity.

Lagan Operations and Maintenace also fulfil the role of PSCS for the project. As the works are located on live public roads, we also design and provide the appropriate temporary traffic management to cater for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians using these roads, including approach roads, and ensuring that access to buildings, premises (business and residential etc.) and lands is always facilitated.
