Project Update Bulletin December 2020

In accordance with the current Covid-19 restrictions and advice, an on-line public consultation, presenting the findings of the constraints study and the scheme options identified as part of Phase 2 – Option Selection was completed in June 2020. The public consultation is now closed however the route options consultation brochure is available to download through this website.

The project is currently at the final stage of Phase 2 and it is expected that a Preferred Route Corridor will be selected in Q1 2021. Once selected a public display event will be arranged to present the Preferred Route Corridor, and to seek the public’s feedback. Details of the Preferred Route Corridor and the date of this upcoming event will be advertised on this website.

The Project Team will continue to address any project queries by phone or email via the contact details provided on the ‘Contact Us’ page of the website.

No key project decisions that require input or feedback from the public will proceed until we are in a position to engage directly through the planned public display of the Preferred Route Corridor.

Public Consultation

Route Corridor Options Public Consultation No. 1

TUESDAY 2ND JUNE - FRIDAY 5TH JUNE 2020

This was the first of the public consultations and the objective was 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 is expected to be completed in Q1 2021 and has been progressed in accordance with TII’s ‘Project Management Guidelines’.

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.
