N16 Road Improvement

Sligo County Council, through the TII National Roads Project Office, have lodged an application with An Bord Pleanála to upgrade circa 2.54km of the N16 national primary route between the townlands of Drumkilsellagh and Lugnagall (occurring predominately within Lugatober).

The project will remove the series of significantly deficient twists and bends on this section of the national primary route. The project will provide further safety benefits along the route including improvements to junction siting’s, the relocation of direct accesses off the national primary route, and the provision of facilities for vulnerable road users.

Further information in relation to the application, which consists of an Environmental Impact Assessment Report (formerly Environmental Impact Statement) and a Natura Impact Statement can be found at www.sligococo.ie/n16lugatober. Construction of the project will also require the compulsory purchase of 23.85 hectares of property made up predominately of agricultural lands but also including some garden frontage.
