    Of course it was already planned but why should that stop Healy-Rae claiming that it was him who made sure it went ahead. This is the sort of posturing and parish pump politics that has this country in the mess its in!

    I could'nt agree more with you.The independent TD,s cannot hold the country to randsom for the sake of a bypass or a hospital. either FG or Labour should abstain on the budget vote and that would wipe out the Healy-Raes and their lot

    confirmed Openings...
    M18 Gort-Crusheen - Nov 12

    Hi folks.
    I've heard nothing about this since the opening date was confirmed as 12th NOvember in the national media.

    Is this date still applicable or have there been any changes?

    I'm actually travelling to Limerick on Friday so an alternative to the Gort/Crusheen hell will be most welcome!!

    Thansk,

    AA Traffic Update

    On Fri 12th Nov the new M18 Gort to Crusheen Bypass will open to motorists

    Updated: 03/11/2010 12:37:00

    The opening ceremony will take place at midday and the road is expected to open to the public by 3pm. This will mark the next phase of the Atlantic Corridor. This section of the route is 23km in length and will bypass Gort, Co Galway and Crusheen, Co Clare. Work on the Gort to Tuam route will commence in 2011 and when finished (expected in 2014), motorists will be able to travel from Gort to Dublin by motorway. The new route will connect to the M6 Galway/Dublin Rd east of Oranmore and will bypass Tuam, Ardrahan, Kilcolgan and Clarinbridge.

    Not yet. There are some minor details needed to be worked out. And it is felt that they will wait till after the Budget.

    press release
    DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT
    24 November 2010

    Q & A –Four Year Plan
    Capital Investment


    What road projects will proceed in 2011?
    · NRA will go ahead with the planned 2011 starts and have adequate money for rehabilitation and minor works.
    · Starts include Belturbet / N5 Longford/ Tralee bypasses and the Cork Southern Ring Road junctions.
    · Two PPP projects will also start in 2011 - the M17/18 Gort – Tuam PPP and M11/Newlands Cross PPP bypasses.
    · Purchase of land for service areas and expressions of interest from developers

    What roads projects are planned after 2011?
    · There will be no major schemes starting in 2012 or 2013.
    · Possibility of commencing construction of N14 Lifford/Letterkenny.
    · The following high priority schemes will proceed as funding becomes available and planning permission is granted: N5 Ballaghadreen bypass, the N4 Downes grade separation, the N2 Slane bypass, the N22 Macroom to Ballyvourney, the N8/N25 Dunkettle roundabout.
    · The Enniscorthy/ New Ross bypasses PPP may restart the procurement process when there is further insight into 2015 and 2016 funding plans.
    · Rehabilitation and minor works will be curtailed in 2013 and 2014, to the extent necessary to balance the budget, but will be increased again in 2015 (even if the overall budget stays very low). This will be necessary to protect existing investment.

    I fear you have missed nothing - in the most literal sense. :mad:

    No, according to NRA press releases the last contract awarded was for the M1 & M4 service areas. The M17/M18 is described as preferred tender (I hope that's just a change of language), the contract hasn't been signed yet (or at least it hasn't made the papers in Galway).

    Was on to NRA today about the award of contract for this project and N11.
    They informed me that the contract will not be awarded untill April, so that puts the whole completion date back well into 2012, There was no reason given for delay

    Not sure what you mean, with at least a year of construction this yoke was never gonna finish until 2012 at minimum.

    It's gonna be built only a 5-minute drive from my place, I'm very excited :)

    Interview with Leo V on Pat Kenny (bottom of this page: http://www.rte.ie/radio1/todaywithpatkenny/ or download http://www.rte.ie/podcasts/2011/pc/pod-v-04051133m56stodaywithpatkenny-pid0-2036952.mp3) the highlight from road building is at abour 2m 45s:
    We have 3 road PPPs that I really want to see go ahead this year. you know one is Gort To Tuam, the other is Rathnew/Newlands and the other is the New Ross Bypass in Wexford
    .
    The NRA is trying very hard to get them over the line, but it is very difficult to get private finance for any project in Ireland at the moment that is contingent on the government being able to meet its obligations for the next 30 years.

    Nothing definite but at least, but he's at least appearing to be behind what many people see as being important projects.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 3,129 Wild Bill


    I can verify that the Longford bypass has started.

    A bit of a Mickey Mouse job on the wrong side of town but us roadies will be living on thin gruel for many years to come! :D

    I was down there a few weeks ago and was wondering what was going on! From what I could see, I think Wills Bros got the contract.

    No announcement by the NRA but CIS seem to have believe it has been awarded as a Public project to BAM.
