    Bugger. Well spotted :(

    The Gweebarra scheme on the N56 has a name


    N56 Boyoughter to Kilkenny Road Scheme

    https://irl.eu-supply.com/app/rfq/publicpurchase_frameset.asp?PID=53080&B=&PS=1&PP=ctm/Supplier/publictenders ( new etender link format)

    I thought they were taking out the bad bend at Maas too.

    Its in the EIS (definitively in it as I remember them mentioning needing to CPO the long closed Maas Inn) - all the way to Cannons S/S at Glenties from memory. Must be cutting the scheme in to even more parcels. I'll compare the EIS to the length on that tender later.

    It is possible they'd already done the geotech for the Glenties-Maas section.

    2) Tender: Naul Road Upgrade (Fingal County Council).

    I know this is from a few months ago now but does anyone know where I could get the plans/drawings for this upgrade.

    I can only come across this, which has references to the documents

    the NRA are beginning to tackle one of the worst stretches of National Road in the country.

    10/09/2012
    Invitation to Tender : N16 Cornacloy to Sradrine Realignment Scheme - Phase 1 (1.1km)


    I drove it a few weeks back and was shocked at how bad it is for a national road. The worst part is extremely windy and there's about 8km of road there thats less windy but still is pure hateful driving.

    Map of the stretch likely to be eliminated after all phases are completed - phase 1 is the westernmost 1.1km

    Drove this part of the N16 today and it's brutal however I notice a lot of work is going on 10k outside of Blacklion. Is that the above road? About time the N16 got some improvements, very poor national road but yet quite busy.

    EDIT: I don't see anything on the NRA site either.... Found an article about the road here http://www.sligotoday.ie/details.php?id=23169

    Its been underway for a while, noticed it a while back and was going to post but managed to forget entirely...

    still going to be a woeful road, the improvement schemes its had are rarely more than 1km in length.

    Woeful and down right dangerous spring to mind when I drive that section of the road. Been doing it quite a lot recently and dread meeting a tractor because for large sections it's impossible to overtake without putting your life at risk!

    Just to let you know that the feasability study is complete and that we are progressing to a part 8 which is the planning stage. The feasability study shows that it will cost 2 million to construct but will generate 5.9 million per annum in the local economy...it is a no brainer really !!!!!!

    Which scheme are you referring to, it's unclear? :confused:


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 ✭✭✭ cllr. eugene cassidy


    I refer to the dis-used rail line between Navan and Kingscourt, It is now called the Boyne Valley to Lakelands Greenway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,905 ✭✭✭ Aard


    Might be helpful to link to the feasability study Eugene. If those figures are true then that's an amazing cost:benefit.

    How does this relate to tenders for roads? Methinks your in the wrong forum/thread.


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 4,371 Mod ✭✭✭✭ spacetweek


    Are they going to re-open the line as a greenway or as a new railway??


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 ✭✭✭ cllr. eugene cassidy


    Everything falling in to place it will open as a greenway with an agreement between Meath/Cavan CC and CIE that will give CIE the option to return it to a rail line if ever they intend to. No funding is available for this amazing amenity but I am very confident that it will.It will be a fantastic amenity not only for Meath/Cavan but Dublin and the surrounding counties


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 ✭✭✭ cllr. eugene cassidy


    It will be going up on the Meath CC website very soon. Make sure you look at the business case for this greenway.

    I see Cork County Council have recently advertised on etenders for Consultants to progress the N28 scheme through the EIA and planning process. Closing date for prequalification is the 6th September.

    Isn't it suspended?
    What is the situation these days with suspended schemes? Can they still be progressed through the planning system?


  • Registered Users Posts: 366 ✭✭ Limerick74


    This scheme does not appear to be suspended any more as the consultant's brief is to publish the EIS and go for planning.

    The suspended list turned out to be a fiction, some of the schemes on it are under construction with others having gone to CPO and site clearance.

    I see that Limerick County Council has advertised on etenders for consultants on the Foynes to Limerick Road Improvement Scheme.
