    Is scheme 3 here a northern bypass of Letterkenny on the N56?

    I've added the other 2, and the N14/N15 - A5 link which would assumingly go ahead if the A5 goes ahead as planned in the capital investment plan.

    No, it's the port road and the existing low standard DC as far as I know

    Surprised about the A5. Really thought that one was dead.


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 4,880 Mod ✭✭✭✭spacetweek


    It'll be a while before you see work starting on N5 Westport-Turlough :(
    Got a response from RegDesign:
    To be honest there is not any progress. The preferred route was adopted and it was decided to concentrate resources on the delivery of the improvement to the N26 at Cloongullane Bridge. You can see a separate project page for Cloongullane.
    In relation to the rest of the project work on this has been suspended. I will arrange to have the project page updated to confirm this.

    Regards

    I have been in contact with Sligo County Council about this scheme.

    They have informed me that fencing, archeological testing, service diversion, ground investigation and topological surveying are ongoing and are expected to be complete by 2017. Construction will begin in 2018 pending approval to proceed to the construction phase from TII.

    Which road is that? I think there's a few.

    Works starting on the Portlaoise Southern Relief Road morning with JCBs being delivered to the site.

    Map of route here: http://www.laois.ie/wp-content/uploads/Presentation-Map-Portlaoise-Southern-Circular-Oct-2017.pdf

    This will be a huge improvement - even though it's the third southern bypass of Portlaoise's main street in effect: 1- JFL Avenue by what was the famous old blue bridge; 2- The M7 of course!

    A proper N80 one would be nice but I'm sure that's probably decades away :(

    Agree, but could be worse - at least the roundabouts are of the proper traditional design - AFAIK, the ones for the Laytown/Bettystown relief road will be the crap specification as per the National Cycle Manual - the pavement width is also to be just 6.0m - not even SC Type 3 standard - just an estate road really. Meath is usually much better than this, but alas, the county is now under the direct influence of the NTA.

    That was a bit much.

    The new design is safer for all road users and pedestrians and cyclists. The "proper traditional design" was widely criticised for allowing high vehicle speeds in urban environments.

    The Laytown road will connect two built up areas and should be built like an estate road.

    So what about buses - as there is likely to be considerable urban growth around Bettystown in the near future, there will be more buses on that road (R150). Such roads should be at least 7.0m like the Braemore Road (R112) near Dundrum, Dublin - that road was recently remodelled as a multi-modal corridor. Really, we have been stereotyped enough for 'The little roads of Ireland...'. As a pedestrian, 7.0m is nothing to cross!
