The Option Selection Report (OSR) will be on Public Display from today Monday 13th January 2020 and details of the development of Phase 2 (Option Selection) of the project. The Report confirms the Preferred Option Corridor for each section.
The Preferred Option Corridor and OSR will be on display at the County House Lifford, at each Public Service Centre throughout the county and the Twin Towns Library, Stranorlar during normal working hours. It will also be available for viewing or downloading free of charge on the Donegal TEN-T website (www.donegal-ten-t.ie)
What happens next?
The next phase of the Project will develop the Design and undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment of the design.
As part of the ongoing development of the project, further surveys will take place throughout the study areas. These include visual walkover surveys as well as ground investigation works. Landowners will be contacted in advance of these surveys regarding access arrangements.
As the project develops, the TEN-T Land Liaison Team in Donegal County Councils National Roads Office will be in contact with affected land and property owners throughout this year. The Project Team and/or the dedicated Public Liaison Officers are available to discuss any queries/impacts with affected land/property owners at any stage of the project development.
