Bulletin for project Website re consultation process during Covid 19 restrictions

“In accordance with the requirements of national guidelines for infrastructure projects, the first phase of the N25 Waterford to Glenmore project has been completed and confirms the project’s strategic fit with current policies and programmes and has identified the need for the scheme and its objectives.

Within the study area for the project, a broad range of constraints and features have been identified which could influence the identification and assessment of viable scheme options.

We are now in a position to engage with the public and present the finding of the constraints study and to seek feedback on the scheme options that have been identified as part of Phase 2 – Option Selection. However, in accordance with the current Covid-19 restrictions and advice, all face to face public consultations and meetings have been postponed until further notice.

Given that the Covid 19 restrictions are continuing, albeit easing, we are seeking the public’s engagement in the form of an on-line consultations which is accessible through the project website, in combination with information in local newspapers. This consultation has been arranged to take place on-line and by post from the 2nd to the 5th of June and to invite submissions up until the 26th June. The consultation is currently being advertised on the project website now and in local newspapers circulating in the scheme area from the 2nd to the 3rd of June.

If you wish to speak to a project team member about a specific consultation query, you may do so by calling 01 8108000 between the 09:00 to 17:00hrs from the 2nd to the 5th June.

From the 8th of June onwards, we will continue to address any project queries by phone or email via the contact details provided on the ‘Contact Us’ page of the website.

It is intended that once covid-19 restrictions are lifted a public display event will be arranged to present the findings of the constraints study and the identified route corridor options, and to seek the public’s feedback. Notification of this public display event will be advertised on this website and on local media and relevant information will also be uploaded to the project website in advance.

The project team will also continue to perform their duties, but no key project decisions that require input or feedback from the public will proceed until we are in a position to engage directly through public consultation.”

What's Happening Now?


This is the first of the public consultations and the objective is to invite the members of the public to comment on the proposals. These comments will assist Kilkenny County Council in the development of the route options for the N25 Waterford to Glenmore Scheme. The Option Selection Phase has now commenced and is being progressed in accordance with TII’s ‘Project Management Guidelines’.

This is an important project for the South East Region.

Option Selection


Stage 1 of the Option Selection Process has considered the identified constraints to develop a range of feasible options for assessment within the study area. These options have been assessed under three headings Engineering, Environment and Economy and six options have been shortlisted to proceed further in the Option Selection Process. These six route Corridor Options are illustrated on the map and available to view and provide feedback through the interactive map. Alternatively, detailed maps of each route corridor option are available to download here.

The route corridor options are typically 600m wide and these corridors represent the lands within which a road scheme could be developed and not the actual width of the road or the lands to be acquired. It should be noted that the boundary of a route corridor may be changed as the project develops to address any new constraints that might emerge during the consultation and design process.

During this public consultation we are inviting feedback on the Route Corridor Options. Please consider carefully the route corridors presented and submit your comments by clicking on the Leave Feedback button.

Feedback and submissions received through this public consultation process will be considered by the project team as part of the Option Selection Phase process. This will involve a detailed assessment of all six Route Corridor Options using our key assessment criteria.

The Option Selection Phase will identify an Emerging Preferred Route Corridor which will then be displayed at a future Public Display Event. This is expected to take place in Q3 of 2020. Updates, news and details of future public consultations will be published on this website and advertised in the local press and on social media.

Key assessment criteria for the Route Corridor Options

  • Economy
  • Accessibility and Social Inclusion
  • Safety
  • Integration
  • Enviornment
  • Physical Activity
