Publication of the emerging preferred route for this scheme has now been deferred to Q1 2019. As a result the project submission to An Bord Pleanala will not happen until the first half of 2021. That'll be 5 years for Phases 1-4

Nope but I expect to see it in the next week. That's what happened the last time anyway - documents were put online after the public sessions were complete.

Hopefully no objections and it can go to ABP in 2021 as planned.

From reading the Donegal Ten-T website, the preferred route won't now be announced until Q2 (which as we know probably means Q3) so I wouldn't be too hopeful

It's the emerging preferred route which is being announced this week, there will be a short period after this where any feedback will be taken into account from the public consultation and the final route will be announced then in Q2.

2+2 mainline it would appear.

Maybe I'm misreading it but it looks single carriageway to me. And no design at all for the bridge to join the A5?

They're planning 2+2 as per the feasibility study, it definitely has the volumes for it anyway.

The A5 bridge already has planning as far as I know, it was just mothballed until this and the A5 mainline were progressed

For sure it's 2+2 ,you wouldn't have slip lanes for the junction halfway along if it wasn't.

It's very twisty and turny though.
