Public Consultation No.2

N6 Galway City Transport Project
Route Selection
Public Consultation No.2

Galway County Council is co-ordinating the development of a transportation solution for Galway following the quashing of the original N6 Galway City Outer Bypass project by the Supreme Court in 2013. The current project is being managed by the National Roads Project Office (NRPO) of Galway County Council on behalf of both Councils under an agreement made pursuant to Section 85 of the Local Government Act 2001. A dedicated project office staffed by the appointed consultant, Arup, has been established beside the NRPO in Ballybrit.

The purpose of this public consultation is to inform the public of the transportation options which have been developed to address the problems identified, the constraints identified to date, the implications of the EU Habitats Directive and the programme for advancement of the new project.

Public consultation forms an important part of advancing the design process and allows the
involvement of the public in developing the Emerging Preferred Option. In order to afford an
opportunity for the public to be fully informed and to raise questions, concerns and comments for future consideration, public consultation sessions will be held at the following locations:

Date                                                        Time                             Venue
Wednesday 28 January 2015               2.00pm-8.00pm         (Westwood Hotel, Dangan)
Thursday 29 January 2015                   2.00pm-8.00pm         (Westwood Hotel, Dangan)
Tuesday 3 February 2015                    2.00pm-8.00pm          (Menlo Park Hotel, Terryland)
Wednesday 4 February 2015              2.00pm-8.00pm          (Menlo Park Hotel, Terryland)

At the public consultation sessions, drawings of the developed options including routes and public transport options and known constraints will be on display.
Galway County Council values the opinion of the community on the project and welcomes comment from the public and interested parties. Staff from Galway County Council (Galway National Roads Project Office) and Arup will be available to answer questions at both venues.
