N59 Corhawnagh to Crockacullion Road Improvement Scheme

Route Selection Process for the N59 Corhawnagh to Crockacullion Road Improvement Scheme.

Public Consultation – Route Selection – Feasible Route Options

Sligo County Council commenced the Route Selection Process for the N59 Corhawnagh to Crockacullion Road Improvement Scheme, with the development of a Constraints Study Area, in the autumn of 2017. With cognisance of identified significant constraints, the Design Team have since established a number of ‘Feasible Route Options’. An assessment will now commence of these options, with the objective being to refine them down to a smaller number of viable options. The ultimate objective will be to establish the optimum route location, which may be, one of the current ‘Feasible Route Options’, or, an alternative amalgamation of a number of different routes. Additionally, further Routes may also be considered during this time.

Public Consultation No. 01:

It is proposed to hold a Public Consultation in the Corhownagh Parish Centre, Ballysadare, Co. Sligo, on the 23rd of October, 2018, between 3pm and 9pm.
