Shell E&P Ireland Limited apologises once again to the local community and to all road users who were inconvenienced by this incident.

The operation to remove the vehicle, which was carrying part of the Corrib tunnel boring machine, was successfully completed at approximately 3pm this afternoon. This was carried out in consultation with the Gardaí and Mayo County Council.

The removed truck and a second one which was behind it have been safely transferred to the Bellanaboy Bridge gas terminal.
