CPOed properties would be cleared well before that stage.

I think they will be landlocked.
I also think the designers missed a trick here, they could have run that sliproad up to the roundabout at kilkenny cross instead, still great progress being made, its only a 2 year timeframe after all.

Would the property owners be entitled to compensation in a case like that? Being surrounded on all sides by N roads isn't great in terms of noise levels and so on. That's a popular part of Castlebar in terms of property prices etc as well, there's likely to be a serious hit on the value of those houses as a result of this.

I assume they were offered to be bought out at a good price but the owners refused it. I doubt they will get any compensation beyond being paid for any of their land taken and possibly new boundary walls or the like.

I think if that happened at my house I'd happily be bought out and just move or build somewhere else nearby to be honest.

There must be a very strong reason for not tying the slip road up to the Kilkenny roundabout. You would be effectively be landlocking all the houses up as far as the roundabout. A secondary road outside their front garden and a new primary slip road along their back wall mightn't have got approval.

They would be going through an awful lot of houses/estate to run it through to the roundabout. Maybe I'm missing something but I'm not sure why connecting it to the roundabout would be beneficial.

Would all depend on the price I suppose. If they were offered market value then they probably wouldn't get a similar site/house in the area.

I had assumed they would be compensated somewhat. There's an awful lot of stone breaking going on near those houses. It would feel like a long two years with all the disturbances.

I don't think there is any compensation for noise disturbance, if there was half of Castlebar would have their hands out. Such works is ultimately beneficial for the area and its residents, its short term pain for long term gain.

I don't see how you compensate someone for the road passing close to their house, either it makes the house unlivable in which case you should be bought out and move elsewhere, or you can live with the road there and the money is going straight into your back pocket. If your house gets CPOed, in theory you get market price but in reality it gets inflated and is at the upper end of local similar house prices even if your house is older/in worse condition. You also get compensation because by definition you have been put out.

Looking at it on Google maps, tying into the roundabout with the link road being south of the N60 would have made sense. From looking at the image posted above, it looks like multiple houses were demolished for the current arrangement which would not have been the case.

Only one house was knocked.

That what I thought, surely a slip onto albeit a small roundabout would have been a better option than a slip onto an already busy road, the slip would also have been further away from the houses.

its a fair distance to the roundabout to be honest.
