February 2022 Update
In January 2022 Roughan & O’Donovan-AECOM (ROD-A) Consulting Engineers were appointed by Donegal County Council (DCC), in conjunction with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to progress this project from Concept Stage, to consideration of Options, selection of a Preferred Solution and finally Detailed Design.
During Spring 2022 ROD-A are identifying the various constraints within the study area (covering the environs of Bridgend), which need to be considered by any proposed improvement scheme. This includes environmental issues, safety, local development needs, pedestrian and cyclists needs and co-ordination with the A2 Buncrana Road project being developed by the Department for Infrastructure in Northern Ireland.
Following the completion of the Constraints Assessment, a Public Consultation event will be held to inform the public and key stakeholders of the constraints identified and to obtain feedback and local knowledge prior to the next stage (consideration of potential improvement options).
