An Emerging Preferred Route Corridor for each Section of the TEN-T network in Donegal have been identified and details of these preferred routes will be presented at public consultation events later this month.

The Donegal TEN-T Priority Route Improvement Project involves the improvement of three sections of the National Road or TEN-T Network including Section 1 – N15/N13 Ballybofey/Stranorlar Urban Region; Section 2 – N56/N13 Letterkenny to Manorcunningham and Section 3 – N14 Manorcunningham to Lifford / Strabane / A5 Link.

Public consultation events will take place from 2pm until 8pm in Lifford, Letterkenny and Ballybofey as follows:

Tuesday, 19th February 2019 County House, Lifford
Wednesday, 20th February 2019 Radisson Hotel, Letterkenny
Thursday, 21st February 2019 Jackson's Hotel, Ballybofey

The Emerging Preferred Route Corridor is typically 300m wide and will facilitate the development of the proposed road and ancillary works.  The effects or impacts of this development on property owners will vary from property to property.

The TEN-T Land Liaison Team in Donegal County Councils National Roads Office have been and will continue to contact property owners within the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor and are available to meet privately with affected property owners in advance of the public consultations.

Work on identifying the Emerging Preferred Route for each section of the Ten-T network in Donegal has been ongoing since public consultations were last held in April and May 2018 and it is planned that the final Preferred Route Corridor for each section will be presented to the public at further Pubic Consultation events in the coming months.
